Are the giant kites really as big as a school bus?
Well, some are actually larger...
Will there be merchandise for sale at the event?
Inside the giant tent on the beach you'll find event t-shirts, assorted wind spinners and windsocks, beach toys, and of course a huge selection of kites for all ages and interests. Even if you don't buy, it's worth taking a walk through what is temporarily the world's largest kite store and checking out all the colorful fun.
Can I rent booth space?
Due to state park regulations, we cannot offer vendor space.
Do you have any other kite events during the year?
One Saturday in late January/early February, we host the Reeds Lake Ice Fly with Rose's Restaurant in East Grand Rapids. Bundle up and join us on the frozen lake for some kiteflying fun, then step inside Rose's to warm up with free hot dogs and hot chocolate.
In September, come back to the Grand Haven beach for the King of the Great Lakes Kiteboarding Test Fest. Kiteboarders can try out next year's new gear while spectators enjoy watching the pros perform extreme tricks.
