The Austin Parks and Recreation Department is hosting their 2018 ABC Zilker Kite Festival and Moss Fest on Sunday, March 4 at Zilker Park.
The smoke-free event will take place on 46-acres of land, and attendees should expect to see a high volume of people, event organizers said.
The event runs from 10 a.m. until 5 p.m., and organizers say you should drink plenty of water and bring sunscreen for the event.
Organizers added they scheduled a backup day for March 11 to account for the possibility of rain.
According to KVUE's Chief Meteorologist Albert Ramon, there's a 40 percent chance of showers and storms on Sunday. While he doesn't think it will be a washout, he said there's a possibility it will be postponed.
