Oodles of Octopi!
Lincoln City now holds the International record of most Large Octopus Kites in the sky at one time - 21! These huge inflatable kites, 90 feet long, look like the balloons flown in holiday parades. The original record was set in California, was increased in Thailand and then France, and was broken again in Washington State last October when 20 of the giant kites were flown together. The kites are manufactured in New Zealand and owned by the individual "pilots". Each kite costs approximately $5000 because of the amount of fabric used and weigh approximately 40 pounds. We were pleased to have gathered some of the best experienced and well known large kite fliers in America for this exciting flying extravaganza.
