Balloons and Blues is BACK!!

After taking a one year break, the Balloons and Blues festival is returning to Monroe June 17-18. The festivities will be held at the Green County fairgrounds with a great line up of locally and internationally known Blues Bands and about 12-15 balloon pilots interested in attending again. Bands in the lineup are Bird Dog Blues Band, Left Wing Bourbon, Brent Johnson and the Call Up, Nick Moss and of course the locally known band The Jimmys.

The weekend includes a variety of food and beverage vendors, a craft show and the car show on Saturday. The event will also sport a bicycle ride to help support cancer treatment in Green County. The event this year is being put on by Arc of Green County, whose mission is to provide funding for area handicapped and disabled citizens.

Arc of Green County is looking for businesses and/or individuals to sponsor the balloons. Balloon sponsors will have the opportunity of crewing a balloon. Names of all supporters and sponsors will be highlighted at the event. To inquire about support and sponsor levels, contact Nick Faessler at 608.214.3852.

ADMISSION IS ALWAYS FREE THANKS TO ALL OF OUR WONDERFUL SPONSORS!
