NORTH BENNINGTON, Vt. (AP) - Stone skippers of all skill levels will be competing on the shores of Lake Paran in southern Vermont.

The village of North Bennington is holding its fifth annual Stone Skipping Festival on Saturday.

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.



The competition starts at 1 p.m.
