NORTH BENNINGTON, Vt. (AP) - A Vermont village is hosting its fifth annual Stone Skipping Festival, gathering people of all sorts to compete among the best stone skippers.

The festival will be held Saturday at Lake Paran in North Bennington. The Bennington Banner reports (https://bit.ly/2xvH9W5 ) the festival was created by Lake Paran President Alisa Del Tufo and her brother-in-law Paul Fero.

Fero says the lake is a good location for competition because the sand gives the skippers good footing and the water is very calm later in the day.

Del Tufo says there will be multiple levels of competition for skippers of all skill levels - including a kids’ competition. There will also be food and music at the event.
