ANTELOPE ISLAND, Utah (AP) -- Antelope Island on the Great Salt Lake is hosting a hot air balloon and kite festival this weekend.

The 2009 Antelope Island Balloon and Kite Stampede started Friday and runs through Sunday night.

Organizers say hot air balloons will fill the sky. Professional kite flyers will demonstrate their art and their intricate crafts, as well. Many kites will be several feet wide or in diameter.

Visitors to the festival are invited to bring and fly their own kites.
