Kitty Hawk Kites Watermelon Contest-Wacky Fun
By Kip Tabb –
A little over 20 years ago, I came to the Outer Banks to work for Kitty Hawk Kites and even back then the Kitty Hawk Kites Watermelon festival was in full swing.
A mid August celebration of summer, its fun, its wacky and a great day for kids. From an adult perspective, if the Kitty Hawk Kites Watermelon Festival doesn’t bring a smile after ten minutes, there’s probably a problem somewhere.
There doesn’t seem to be a theme to it, except there are a lot of watermelons, activities for kids and a wonderful refusal to take itself too seriously.
I got there in the afternoon and took some pictures. Hopefully the images will give a sense of what the Kitty Hawk Kites Watermelon Festival is all about.
