76- CAPE GAZETTE, Friday, April 10 - April16, 1998 Kite Fly, Easter Promenade highlight holiday weekend. Spring won't be the only thing n the air when the Great Delaware Kite Festival takes to the skies on Good Friday, April 10, at Cape Henlopen State Park. The event, sponsored by the Lewes Chamber of Commerce and the Delaware Division of Parks and Recreation, is just one of the yearly attractions that her- ald the arrival of the season in the ('ape Region, as the 46th Annual Easter Promenade takes place Sunday, April 12, at 1 p.m., in the Rehoboth Beach Convention Cen- ter. The kite festival has attracted increasing numbers of both partic- ipants and spectators each year and organizers expect this, the 30th anniversary of the festival, to be no different. The event traces its origins to a kite-flying contest between the Maharajah of Bharat- pur, India, and Delaware's gover- nor in 1968, and this year, to hon- or the anniversary, a reenactment of the original "duel" will be staged. Two handmade commem- orative kites have been donated by the Valli Boyz, a professional stunt kite-flying group, to recog- nize the longevity of the event. The Kite Festival will be em- ceed by Dan Gaffney of Eagle 97.8, and Dennis Forney of the Cape Gazette. Competitors in the contest will be vying for awards, donated by area business and civic leaders;in novice and advanced divisions. Awards will be given in each age division. Six special class awards will be designated for superlatives including smallest and most se- nior competitor. The entrance fee for competi- tors is $1 for flyers up to 17 years old, and $2 for all others. Partici- pants can also pay an additional $2 to compete in the Highest Kite Award category, which will take place at 12:15 p.m. for all ages. Although there is no charge to watch the proceedings, a nominal special event fee to enter the park will be collected at the park en- trance. Registration begins at 9:30 a.m. The children's and teens' competition take place from 10 a.m. to noon, followed by the awards ceremony for the morning competitions. The adult, stunt kite, novice individual precision and open individual ballet compe- titions follow the highest kite competitions. The rain date for the Great Delaware Kite Festival is Saturday, April 11. Prize-filled eggs delivered by the Easter Bunny, visits by John Hadfield as CRASH the clown, Big Dog of Big Dog Sportswear, "Carlton the Bear Who Cares," and, of course, the latest in spring fashions modeled by the young and not so young, will be among the highlights at Rehoboth's annu- al Easter Promenade. Hadfield, who will offer a mix of juggling, unicylcing, comedy and improvisation, will serve as master of ceremonies for the event, which is sponsored by the Rehoboth Beach-Dewey Beach Young ladies in their finery are always crowd pleasers at the annual Rehoboth Beach East er Promenade, slated for Convention Hall. Trophies will be awarded in a variety of cate- gories, ranging from babies to family and best bonnet. 00ILS J April - November, 1998 Murder Mystery Trains every Saturday.
