KVUE -- The annual Zilker Kite Festival has been canceled for March 9, 2014 due to weather. Organizers announced the closure late Saturday night due to an inclement weather forecast. The festival had already been rescheduled because of bad weather on March 2.

"We want to be especially respectful of our home - Zilker Park - and with this type of weather, we risk doing too much damage to the park under these wet conditions," organizers said on their Facebook page.

"While we're disappointed that we won't be able to fly together this year, we already have our sights set on a bigger and better fest for next year," they go on to say. A date for next year's festival has not yet been set.
