Every year in September, Ocean City holds a huge festival they call SunFest. This was my very first time going because I usually had to work at my weekend offline job, but I asked off specifically to see what all the hubbub was all about.
Before I go on, I want to mention that if you’re planning a trip there next year, make sure you understand THERE IS NO PARKING. Serious. None whatsoever. So if you don’t have a hotel room on the beach or pretty well near it, you’re pretty well up the creek without a paddle because you’re walking it.
So we had to park at a convenience store on 26th street I believe which meant we had to walk 26 blocks before we hit the craft fair part which was what was taking up the main parking lot.
Was it worth it?
Thank God, it was a beautiful day. Despite being windy which comes with it being on the water and all, it was still warm and actually hot in parts (could be the 2 mile hike there and back but I digress…).
So I’d like you to see what we found once we got there. A parade of kites and not just any ol’ kite but super duper monster kites which I would love to take home, hang them from the roof of my condo, and watch the tourists stare and point.
So here we go…
And after 26 blocks of blood sweat and tears, we finally made it…
