Until Next Year

Although weather did not cooperate for the balloons this year, we all did have a great time and appreciate all of items that did go very well.

As each year comes, we pray for weather like we had last year (2016) and many other years in the past, where scheduled flights take off every day/time and the glows are just a down right gorgeous site to see.

We had some of the greatest Blues Bands around playing awesome music all weekend, the beer was fresh and cold, and we had plenty of great food to choose from.

Not to mention the incredible Classic Car show!

We hope you take the time to thank all of the volunteers and businesses who spend time and donate funds to keep the event FREE!
