It’s time to fly at the 22nd annual Southern Oregon Kite Festival, which kicks off Friday with an indoor kite flying demonstration.
The free exhibition will be from 7 to 9 p.m. July 18 in the Brookings-High School gymnasium, 625 Pioneer Road, Brookings.
Kite pilots will demonstrate movements with kites of varying sizes that are designed to fly in a windless environment. The motion generated by the kite flier moving backward and in circles while pulling and jerking on the kite lines provides the “wind” for the kites to move, event organizers said.
The Curry County Cruisers car club shows its classic and antique cars every Wednesday at Les Schwab.
Classic car buffs in the Brookings area have been gathering every Wednesday night at Les Schwab Tire Center to show their classic cars and trucks to others and meet other area residents who enjoy collecting and restoring cars.
