Typically, the blinking lights that take over Long Beach Boulevard in October signify the end to the “season” here on our beloved Island.
However, this year in 2015 – for the first-time ever – LBI FLY – the first-ever International Kite Festival to be held on Long Beach Island – successfully extended the season even further, as kites in all shapes, sizes and colors graced the skies over our beaches from Holgate to Barnegat Light from October 9 -12.
The festival served to bring a new crop of engaged visitors to LBI, and in turn helped our local merchants out as well.
Though it was the 1st Annual festival, as one of the presenting sponsors, we predict that a 2nd Annual LBI FLY will be held again next year.
We will definitely keep you up to date on those details.
