Temps in the low 80’s and just enough of a breeze, but not too much. That made for a perfect kite festival held by The Rockfish Valley Foundation [2].

One of the favorites at this year's race was the parachute races. Against the wind, it's harder than it looks! [3]

BRL has been a charter media sponsor of the kite festival since its beginning five years ago in 2009. Back then our founding publication made it the cover! Click on the photo above to read the story about the festival’s beginning.

Another favorite each year is the Bold RockFish River Duck Race for kids. [4]
