AUSTIN -- Last Sunday the Zilker Kite Festival was postponed. Good news for kite lovers: According to Zilker Kite Festival's facebook page, the festival will happen Sunday, March 9.

The 86th annual Zilker Kite Festival returns on Sunday, March 9 from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. at Zilker Park. Go here for photos from last year's event.

The Exchange Club of Austin, ABC Home and Commercial Services, City of Austin, HEB and British Airways will join forces for the event, which has been bringing thousands of people to Zilker every year since 1928.

“This is a beloved, free event that has been a favorite custom for our city for generations. The simple act of gathering in the park to fly kites together—with no barriers to participation—that is what Austin is truly about," said ABC Home and Commercial Services President, CEO and festival spokesperson Bobby Jenkins.

While you're encouraged to bring your own kite, there will be some on sale. There will also be a kite-making workshop, rock wall climbing, face painting and many more activities.

Take photos and share them through social media with #ZilkerKiteFest.
