Incredible displays of giant show kites, precision stunt teams performing amazing aerial ballet with their kites, and spectacular and colorful ground displays!
One very significant change this year: KOLM moves inland after record lake levels leave too little beach to contain the event.
Free kite-making for kids from 9 to 11 a.m. Sunday.
There is no specific schedule of activities (except for kids’ kite-making on Sunday); activities are dependent upon wind conditions. We operate on “kite time;” if the wind is light, the stunt teams can still fly with their low-wind kites, but the giant show kites will likely be grounded until the wind picks up. Activities like running of the bols and glider drops will occur regardless of wind condition.
There will be a reversal of roles this year, with the high school as the festival ground and Neshotah Beach providing the overflow parking. A shuttle bus service will run from the beach to the high school from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. both days.
