Kite Day at Neshotah Beach

My family and I stopped in at Neshotah Park's "Kite Day" at the beach. The crowds were relaxed and enjoying the many kites flying in the air as well as those flags decorating the beach.

Okay, I got creative need only to turn your head a little to see these glorious wind-catching kites showing off for young and old!

The circle kite above was spinning...quite a site to enjoy! It was a cool day and Lake Michigan was very chilly. We were shocked that there were so many braving the frigged waters.

Then there were the land lovers who were building or just enjoying the sand models!

Here is the front view of these marvelous kites! Some I was told cost as much as $7,000.00! 

Some of these large flags were just exceptional!

I am notorious for cutting off heads...well this sea serpent didn't have a chance with my camera in hand! At least the turtle survived this shot!

Aren't these gorgeous!

Will the real Nemo stand up!!!!

As you can see is was a beautiful day and these bright kites were amazing. I'm sure that many were bought at our very own local shop called Unique Flying Objects which has a wonderful variety of kites. Thank you for stopping by. Let me know if you have a unique, colorful and annual event! I would love to hear about it!
