Organizers of the Lincoln City Summer Kite Festival are accepting entries in a contest to name the 2018 event — provided the suggestions start with the letter “Y.”
For years, the Lincoln City Visitor & Convention Bureau has been working its way through the alphabet for the June event. Last year’s search for a title beginning with “X” resulted in a festival called “X-Kitement.”
The naming contest runs through December and is open to anyone aged 18 and older.
Entries can be submitted online at OregonCoast.org/Kite-Contest. The lucky winner will receive a signature Finders Keepers glass float.
Multiple entries per person are allowed. In the event of duplicate winning submissions, a random number generator will be used to pick the winner.
The Summer Kite Festival will return to Lincoln City’s D River Wayside on June 23 and 24, featuring some of the most colorful big show kites in the world, alongside kids’ kite making, professional kite demonstrations and the Running of the Bols, which is a footrace across the beach with each participant harnessed to a parachute kite.
