Blaine Kite Day takes place on Saturday

The Blaine Chamber of Commerce and the Washington Kitefliers Association (WKA) will host Blaine Kite Day on Saturday, June 22. From 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. at Marine Park in Blaine, the community is encouraged to come enjoy a day of kiting.

Unlike the Birch Bay Kite Festival, Blaine’s version is a casual event organized by WKA. There are no vendors, though there will be a food truck, said Blaine Chamber of Commerce secretary Carroll Solomon.

Kiting clubs from around the region will be present to show their stuff and help young kite enthusiasts with kite decoration and flying techniques.

Club fliers will also offer hands-on time with their beautiful creations to inspire the “Kites for Kids” booth, where volunteer kite makers will assist children in decorating their own colorful kites.

Kites will not be provided for adults, though interested parties are encouraged to purchase a moderately sized, single line kite from one of many supporting northwest kite vendors such as Ocean Shores Kites, Elemental Kites, Northwest Winds Kites and The Kite Shoppe.
