SOLOMONS, Md. — Many kites could be seen fluttering, floating and flying near the Thomas Johnson Bridge as motorists crossed from St. Mary’s to Calvert County Saturday morning, Sept. 3.

The windy weather worked wonders for kite enthusiasts who stopped by the Solomons Island Kite Day at Glascock Field.

The Wings Over Washington Kite Club was on site to fly them in all colors, shapes and sizes. Visitors could hone their flying skills and learn fancy maneuvers from the expertise of the club. Members of the club gave demonstrations on super kites, and offer flying lessons.

If participants didn’t have their own kites, kite kits were available for purchase at Calvert Marine Museum. A local chapter of Civil Air Patrol were also volunteering at the event.

Event sponsors include the Autism-Asperger Association of Calvert County, Lighthouse Market Place, Roy Rogers and Papa Johns.
