July 22, 2014 07:28 pm

At past Southern Oregon Kite Festivals, the bear kite has taken effort to get it aloft. This year, weight and strength were needed to keep if from flying away.

Southern Oregon Kite Festival organizers are ecstatic about the attendance for the 22nd annual event this past weekend.

“We thought the attendance was the best ever since the inaugural kite festival,” said Emily Grimes, kite festival planning committee member. “And, what an enthusiastic and appreciative crowd we had, including people from other cities in Oregon, California, and surrounding states such as Idaho.”

And one factor that contributed to the success of this year’s festival was the wind. The Curry Coastal Pilot’s weather station reported an average breeze of 2 mph, with gusts to 11 mph on Saturday and 17 mph on Sunday.
