Yes the kids are back in school. And yes, it is quite a bit cooler outside, but technically fall doesn’t begin until September 23. With that date in mind, the team is heading to the beach this weekend. We won’t be swimming, mind you, but we will be watching hundreds of kites take to the skies at the Ogunquit Kite Festival.
Beyond checking out kites of all kinds, CP#1 and #2 are looking forward to the morning kite building workshop. The Ogunquit Rotary Club will provide 300 free kits, so that kids can design their own kites. And little ones will be awarded prizes for their creations.
According to the folks at the Ogunquit Chamber of Commerce, the popular event draws big crowds, so be sure to get there early for kite making. Or arrive at noon when the sky is bursting with color.
