This was a first for our little town of Marine, IL. We just held a 3 day Hot Air Balloon Festival. It brought thousands of people from the surrounding area, to watch the balloons set up and take off. We also had plenty of great music, great food, and various aviation related displays. The folks that put this event together really did a wonderful job. I sincerely hope that this becomes a yearly tradition. Each day began with an early morning launch, followed by another in the late afternoon, and then finally culminating with the amazing Balloon glow at night. I hope you find it interesting and maybe we’ll see you out here next year. Thanks for watching!
