Do Sundays our way and you'll never be bored:

For those who want to fly a kite: The third day of the Wildwood International Kite Festival brings kite aficionados to the Wildwood beach from Rio Grande Ave to Burke Ave. Competitions and demonstrations begin at 9 a.m. and wrap up with an awards ceremony at 3 p.m.  

For an unusual documentary viewing: Godfrey Reggio’s experimental documentary Visitors is screening at Theatre N at Nemours in Wilmington, DE at 2 p.m. With music by famed composer Philip Glass, this 87-minute look at humans’ relationship with technology contains zero dialogue.

For those who would like some wine with that: Ever wonder what kind of wine would go with Philly classics like cheesesteaks and TastyKakes? This class at Pinot Boutique in Old City will teach you just that from 2 p.m. to 3:30 p.m.

For those who don’t mind something a little scaly: If reptiles and amphibians give you goosebumps in a good way, spend your afternoon in the woods at Doylestown, PA’s Peace Valley Nature Center. Starting at 2 p.m., a guide will lead explorers through the woods to observe habitats of local reptiles.

For those who need their alt-rock fix: Grammy-nominated Death Cab for Cutie plays at Revel Ovation Hall in Atlantic City, NJ with openers Titus Andronicus. Doors open at 8 p.m.
