Everyone is invited to take part in the Atlantic Coast Kite Festival’s “Best Kite Contest.” To enter this contest, participants bring a kite that they have made or purchased and fly it at the festival. The contest consists of two parts: the actual kite itself (how it looks and how well it is made), and the participant’s ability to fly the kite. Participants must be able to fly their kites consecutively in the air for 5 minutes at a height of 100 feet. Kites will be judged on Flight (ability to fly for 5 minutes), Structural Design, Craftsmanship, and Visual Appeal. There will be three competitive divisions: Master, Novice, and Youth (ages 7-14). Trophies will be awarded for all divisions.

Virginia Beach Funk Fest is the heart and soul of this weekend, featuring music generated over the years by influential legends such as James Brown, Sly and the Family Stone, George Clinton, and The Ohio Players. Funk is an American musical style that originated in the mid-to late-1960’s and blends soul music, soulful jazz, and R&B into a rhythmic, danceable form of music. Funk brings a strong rhythmic groove of electric bass and drums to the foreground. The musical style was a major influence on the development of 1970’s disco music, and has even impacted house music and hip-hop. Food, merchandise, and dance contests all contribute to a festive, “funky” vibe!
