  • Unfortunately due to high winds aloft, none of the balloons launched either day. On the first day a half dozen balloons inflated and on the second day only one balloon inflated. The balloon was inflated to give a very disappointed film crew from Japan something to shoot as they were in town to shoot a landscape full of balloons.

    There was a baggy toss from the roof of the building so the balloonists had a last chance to get some more points for their season totals.

    There was a great food competition with many entrants using the specified ingredients in a lot of various ways. There were new pins and t-shirts for sale and many people having a great time together. Thanks to Colleen Johnson, the judges, and all of the people who helped make the event happen.
