LBI Fly will host celebrity kite fliers from the United States and Canada. The festival will feature kite performers, giant kite fliers and kite artists who have flown at prestigious and large festivals around the world. Several teams of sport kite fliers will fly to choreographed musical routines throughout the weekend. They will amaze the spectators with their intricate movements and complete control of their dual line and quad kites. Demonstrations and a learn to fly area will be near the sport kite field for people who want to try to fly a dual or quad kite. Giant inflatable kites and single line artist kites will be featured. Many of the inflatable kites, some as large as a school bus are in the shapes of whales, stingrays, octopuses, a giant duck. There will also be candy dropped from kites for the kids and races with inflatable parachute-like kites at specific times and ages during the weekend.
