Come spread the holiday cheer with Kitty Hawk Kites and the Jockey’s Ridge Crossing crew. Free visit and pictures with Santa, cocoa and cookies, and a light show with kites on Jockey’s Ridge are just a few of the fun and festive things going on… not to mention all the amazing holiday sales!

Share all your Christmas wishes and get your picture taken with Santa at Kitty Hawk Kites at Jockey’s Ridge Crossing in Nags Head on Friday, November 25 from 10am – 2pm and Saturday, November 26 from 1pm – 4pm. Have some fun with Santa’s elves and try out classic toys straight from the workshop! On Saturday, we’ll also have a bake sale with plenty of holiday treats to enjoy, with the proceeds benefitting Beach Food Pantry.

Be sure to make it out on Saturday, November 26 from 4pm – 6pm for a light display like none other. Kites with Lights, at Jockey’s Ridge State Park, will feature large 19-to-30 foot kites decked out in the spirit of the holiday season! At 5pm, enjoy the lighting of the Jockey’s Ridge State Park Solar Christmas tree out on the dunes directly across from Jockey’s Ridge Crossing.

Plus, we encourage you to make a donation to Toys for Tots at our Nags Head and Hatteraslocations to help support local children in need this holiday season!
