Fly a kite at Bug Light Park

Written by: Aimsel Ponti
Bug Light Park

There are many things you can do at South Portland’s Bug Light Park depending on what time of year it is. From sunbathing to picnicking to starting your journey on the Greenbelt Walkway, this seaside park’s the place to be. But permit us to ask you this question: When’s the last time you flew a kite? We bet it’s been a minute. Make one or buy one and then get ready to run and watch it take flight. You’ll have a blast while reliving your childhood. Oh and it’s on the ocean so there’s that added bonus. Does salty air make your kite fly better? There’s only one way to find out.
