Another popular Seaside Heights event is making a return this year 2021. 'Kites in the Heights' is back.

This year will feature more kites than ever taking flight on North Beach on the Boardwalk and beach north of Casino Pier. It's a bit more laid back than South Beach. The events are absolutely free. Just walk onto the sand and enjoy the show up close and personal. The event runs from 4-7 p.m. weather permitting.

Listen to Matt Ryan afternoons on 94.3 The Point and download our free 94.3 The Point app.

Marvel at massive, whimsical kites flying through the air. You can view them from the 'Classic American Boardwalk' or as you enjoy your afternoon on the beach north of Casino Pier.

The kids will love flying giant zebras, whales, dragons, beach balls, and more. You can even bring your own kites to add to the fun. No kite? No problem. From traditional to unique, kites will be for sale on site.

Here's a taste of what to look forward to.

As if the kites weren't fun enough, there will also be a giant interactive bubble display that you and the family can dive right into.

    Did Seaside make the list? LOOK: Here are the 50 best beach towns in America

    Every beach town has its share of pluses and minuses, which got us thinking about what makes a beach town the best one to live in. To find out, Stacker consulted data from WalletHub, released June 17, 2020, that compares U.S. beach towns. Ratings are based on six categories: affordability, weather, safety, economy, education and health, and quality of life. The cities ranged in population from 10,000 to 150,000, but they had to have at least one local beach listed on TripAdvisor. Read the full methodology here. From those rankings, we selected the top 50. Readers who live in California and Florida will be unsurprised to learn that many of towns featured here are in one of those two states.
