The Rogallo Kite Festival includes two days of kite flying to honor Francis Rogallo, NASA scientist and inventor of the flexible wing. His inventions started the sport of hang gliding and his designs have carried over into the stunt kites, power kites and hang gliders that are flown today. In honor of Francis Rogallo and all of his accomplishments, Kitty Hawk Kites will put his ideas on display through flight! Come out and see large kite displays, learn to fly various kites, kitemaking, and more fun activities!
