Go fly a kite in Lewes, Del.

Cooperation and weather are two terms that don't often go hand in hand, which makes the feats at the Great Delaware Kite Festival all the more impressive. The event, recognized as one of the Top 10 kite competitions in the country, takes place tomorrow from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. at Cape Henlopen State Park in Lewes.

More than 200 people take part in stunt, homemade and store-bought competitions in child, teen and adult divisions. The event also includes a stunt-kite exhibition, recreation, food and refreshments.

Then on Saturday, from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m., on the Boardwalk at 1 Virginia Ave., catch the Annual Fun Fly, with kite demonstrations, kite-making, refreshments, and an appearance by the Easter bunny.

For more information about both events, call Rehoboth Toy & Kite at 302-227-6996.

Girls on exhibit

It's the classic dichotomy: Good girls vs. bad girls.

Bad Girls, Good Girls, an exhibit by Connecticut artist Ann Chernow, examines these two groups' differences (and lack thereof). In her prints, movie moments are "overlaid with contemporary feminine attitudes; heroines become temptresses, and illusions are made familiar."

The exhibit runs through May 3 at Print Center, 1614 Latimer St. in Philadelphia. Call 215-735-6090 for more information.
