The Great Delaware Kite Festival, co-sponsored by the Lewes Chamber of Commerce and the Delaware Division of Parks and Recreation, takes place at Cape Henlopen State Park on Good Friday, APRIL 2, 2010.

There is no entry fee for competitors. The competitions are in three age categories: Children-Up to age 12; Teens-13-17 and Adults-18 & older. Within each age category, kite flyers are judged by the type of kite they are flying—home-made or store-bought.

Entrance fees apply for cars to enter the State Park which will be collected at the entrance to the Park – $4 per car for Delaware license tags and $8 per car for out-of-state tags.

Registration begins at 9:00 a.m. The Children’s and Teen’s competitions take place from 10:00 a.m. to Noon followed by the awards ceremony for the morning competitions. The Adult Competitions, Stunt Kite Competitions, Novice Individual Precision Competitions and the Open Individual Ballet Competitions follow the Highest Kite Competition which begins immediately after the morning awards ceremony.
