If you are enjoying the views from the balcony of your vacation condo in Destin and see an 80-foot panda or a 100-foot octopus floating over the Destin Harbor, don’t worry! That means it’s time for the 8th Annual Flying High on the Harbor Kite Festival! Each year, Kitty Hawk Kites and the Emerald Coast Kite Fliers Club present two days of kite flying festivities! The Kitty Hawk Kite store in Destin’s HarborWalk Village will feature kite making lessons for kids, game demos, and a BOGO kite sale! A free shuttle boat will be running from HarborWalk Village to Norriego Point, so you can catch a free ride to one of Destin’s most beautiful beaches.  At Norriego Point, there will be huge show kites filling the sky over the Harbor, free kite flying lessons, and a candy drop for the kids! These giant show kites can be anywhere from 25 to 100 feet long!

This annual event is a local favorite, so if you are staying in a condo in Destin, you definitely don’t want to miss it! The festival will take place from 10am to 4pm on September 17th and 18th, 2016. The free shuttle boat to Norriego Point will run every 30 minutes, so you can get BOGO kites from Kitty Hawk Kites and then jump on the shuttle for a free kite flying lesson! This is one of the best family friendly festivals of the year. Plus, admission to the event and the shuttle is totally free!
