Autumn Aloft

Autumn Aloft

High winds kept the Autumn Aloft event grounded last weekend, but organizers report the hot air balloon event was still a success. 

The Autumn Aloft saw a bit of a hiccup in their event. Event Organizer Meisha Ross says that the winds on Saturday and Sunday prevented the balloons from taking flight.
