Entry into the Kite Loft store transports you to a world of brilliant colors, spinning windsocks, flying toys, whizzing rubberbands, floating kinetics, tinkling wind chimes, sky chairs, windwheels and, of course, lots of kites.
 
The Kite Loft was founded by Bill "King of the Wind" Ochse, who by his sheer energy and natural charisma managed to elevate Ocean City to its status of Kite Capital of the World by 1978. Currently, The Kite Loft is owned and operated by Jay and Mary Lynn Knerr who have strived to maintain that status. Ocean City, Maryland hosts two International Kite Festivals, held every last weekend in April and third weekend after Labor Day.
