The MV Wind Festival was scheduled to take place last weekend, but forecasts of hurricane force winds didn't bode well for kite flying. Instead, the festival will be held this Saturday from 11 a.m. to dusk at Ocean and Waban parks in Oak Bluffs.

The event is free, but kite registration is required to be eligible to win a prize. Registration is onsite and will close 30 minutes before each event.

The festival will feature a variety of exhibits, activities and demonstrations, as well as sailing and windsurfing off the town beach.

Kite making begins at 11 a.m. Among the prizes to be awarded: best green kite made out of the Vineyard Gazette.
