Photo & Video by Don Backman

The beaches were buzzing this weekend as two well-known and beloved events made returns to Tillamook County beaches. The Rockaway Beach Kite Festival fell victim to “calm winds” on Friday and finally Saturday afternoon the winds picked up and so did the kites. Here are some photos and a video from the event.
Pioneer photographer/videographer Don Backman was busy – and headed to Pacific City to catch some of the action as over 300 competitors caught some waves in Pacific City.
