Beach Happenings — Body, Soul and Kites


While most of the big events of the summer begin to fade into the sunset, a couple of small but healthy choices are in store this weekened with the Body and Soul Festival at the Lions Club and the kite Fun Fly-In on the beach.

The Body and Soul Festival is billed as a “holistic lifestyle event” and runs Saturday and Sunday at the Lions location, 832 Ocean Shores Blvd. Cost is $3 per day or $5 for a weekend pass that includes all classes. It is 10-6 p.m. on Saturday and 10-5 p.m. Sunday.

“The Festival provides an opportunity for individuals to explore their options in creating healthier and more conscious lifestyles,” according to the website for the event: http://www.oceanshoresfestival.com/whatwhen.asp

And for those seeking holistic health on the beach, the Fun Fly-In on Saturday and Sunday is sort of the more relaxed kite festival featuring many of the same folks from the Festival of Colors in June.
