The 30th Annual Rogallo Kite Festival, hosted by Kitty Hawk Kites, is scheduled for June 9th and 10th, 2012, from 10A.M. to 4P.M. The festival will be held on the dunes of Jockey's Ridge State Park, located at mile post 12.5. - Close to the Nags Head Inn Oceanfront Outer Banks Hotel. This is a free event and is open to the public. The Rogallo Kite Festival includes two days of kite flying to honor Francis Rogallo, NASA scientist and inventor of the flexible wing. His inventions started the sport of hang gliding and his designs have carried over into the stunt kites, power kites and hang gliders that are flown today. Kitty Hawk Kites presents two full days of large kite displays. Large single line kites, including a 100 ft. octopus, an 80 ft. scuba diver and a 50 ft. fish, will soar above Jockey's Ridge. Kitty Hawk Kites will offer free stunt and power kite lessons on the dunes and free kite making at the Kitty Hawk Kites store directly across from the festival.
