The Southern Delaware region is well-known for its unique, fun-filled and occasionally wacky happenings, and this fact is demonstrated perfectly by the annual Great Delaware Kite Festival. Now in its 45th year, this celebration of the kite is open to just about anyone who loves to build, buy and, most important, fly kites.
According to a press release from the Lewes Chamber of Commerce, the festival will be held at Cape Henlopen State Park on March 29. This event, which will run between 10 a.m. and 3 p.m., will feature a great selection of activities for the whole family to enjoy.
The annual series of competitions is the big-ticket attraction. There are three age-based categories to choose from: One for children up to the age of 12, another for those between 13 and 17 years old and, lastly, a group for folks 18 and older.
There are a variety of prizes and accolades available, including awards for Individual Precision, Most Senior Flyer and Largest Kite. A separate competition for The Highest Kite Award will also be held, which is open to everyone. As you can imagine, the winner will be the one who can fly a kite the highest without losing it.
Additionally, two local businesses – Kids' Ketch and Rehoboth Toy & Kite Company – will be available to sell different kinds of kites to anyone who is interested, and the Lewes Chamber of Commerce will be establishing an open area for people to practice with or at least try out their new toys
Admission is free for both competitors and observers, and all are invited to attend. This festival is just one of the many unique activities that occurs in the region. You can learn more about this and other happenings by contacting a Rehoboth Beach real estate agent today.
