Event Description: 

Roanoke Island Festival Park is pleased to present two new summer exhibits, Post from the Coast and Flying Kites with Delia! The exhibits will open daily in the ticket sales gallery from 9 a.m. – 5 p.m. and are free to the public. Both traveling exhibits are on loan from the Museum of the Albemarle.

Post from the Coast features a curated collection of vintage and modern postcards that depict scenes from coastal North Carolina. The exhibit includes nostalgic and contemporary images of beaches, transportation, architecture, and recreation. Adding to the experience, several cards have been enhanced for viewing with 3-D glasses.

Flying Kites with Delia is a children’s exhibit that highlights the significance of kites throughout history. From innovation to recreation, visitors can learn how kites were used by Benjamin Franklin, the Wrights Brothers, and in various military operations. Guests can also discover different types of kites and how they are enjoyed by kiteboarders and beachgoers today.

“We are looking forward to sharing these wonderful exhibits with our guests this summer. The exhibits tie in perfectly with the history of the season and evoke a sense of summer nostalgia,” said Kim Sawyer, Executive Director at Roanoke Island Festival Park.
