Lighting it up

Hot Air Balloon Festival hits the Crown of Maine
Fiona Smith
Lighting the Night Sky. On August 26, at the balloon festival, tethered balloons floated up and down to show off their flames.

The Balloon Festival was held at the Northern Maine Fairgrounds on the weekend of August 24-26. They started launching balloons Thursday, August 24, but unfortunately on Friday, August 25, balloon activities were canceled because of the rain. On Saturday, August 26, the weather cleared later in the day, so pilots were still able to do the night glow.

They didn’t start taking balloons down until around 9:30 pm on August 26, so that’s when most of the crowd started heading out and leaving the fairgrounds. Not everyone was able to watch the balloon festival. Some were stuck working at the food stands, some were even working at their stands while it was raining on Friday, August 25. “It was precipitating, and I did not like it, and I was also working, which made it ten times worse because I was trying to make drinks while it was raining, and we ran out of ice,” Morgan Clair ’27 said.
