2015 Long Beach Island International Kite Festival photos (for NewsWorks)

The breeze on Sunday was just enough to keep most show kites in the air on Long Beach Island this weekend. The sky above the beach at Ship Bottom, NJ was filled with colors as dozens of kites floated above. But the 7 mph wind wasn’t enough to lift the largest kites of the ground. The popular Whale remained bagged at the inaugural LBI FLY International Kite Festival. The festival runs Oct 9-12, 2015 on Long Beach Island.

Hundreds of kite flyers and families who came to the beach to see the kites mingled between ground art and kite lines. At other events down the Shore kites and specters are separated by roped lines. Here people come out, interact and having a blast said president of the South Jersey Kite Flyers (SJKF) Mike Dallmer, Sr., of Northeast Philadelphia. He, his wife and son travel up and down the coast visiting kite festivals and often participating in them. The season starts at Memorial Day Weekend in Wildwoods and this is the last large event of the season, he explains.
