PARRSBORO - Paragliders and hang gliders from throughout the Maritimes descended on Parrsboro for the Festival of Free Flight held over the long weekend.
Although the wind didn't cooperate, many pilots did manage to get a few short flights in.
"We had some flights in," Diligent River's Michael Fuller said. "So it wasn't our best year, but it wasn't our worst year either."
Fuller is a senior instructor at Pegasus Paragliding. While waiting for the wind to pick up he talked about the sport of paragliding, which he's been participating in for 17 years.
