Friends of Crescent Beach and the Algoma Area Chamber of Commerce are once again partnering to present the fifth annual, family-friendly Soar on the Shore Kite and Beach Festival (algoma.org/soar) on Crescent Beach on Aug. 17, 11 am – 4 pm. (All activities are weather-dependent; the rain date is Aug. 18, 11 am – 4 pm.)
Members of the Wisconsin Kiters Club will provide stunt kites, giant display kites and a kite candy drop/candy blasting for kids, and they’ll be ready to answer questions and give newbies some valuable tips. The Water’s Edge Artists plein air painters will also be working throughout the festival grounds.
Children may participate in kite making, rock painting, windsock making, beach mosaics, street games and more. Easels will be available for aspiring plein air artists. Food items will include ice cream, root-beer floats, sweet corn, popcorn and foot-long hot dogs. Crescent Beach T-shirts will also be available for purchase, with profits benefiting Friends of Crescent Beach.
