Park to let public build and fly a kite

Kite aficionados can enjoy a Saturday by the shore on April 26, designing, building and testing handmade kites. With the help from park staff, participants will build kites and use their imaginations to decorate one of their own. At the conclusion of the program, the group will head outside to send their finished products soaring over the coast of Delaware Seashore State Park.

The cost for the program is $4 per person, and all materials will be provided. The program begins at 1 p.m. Pre-registration is required, as space is limited.

The program meets at the Indian River Life-Saving Station Museum, which is located 3.5 miles south of Dewey Beach and 1.5 miles north of the Indian River Inlet Bridge. For more information or to register, contact the Indian River Life-Saving Station at (302) 227-6991 or at
