Good Morning,

First I want to say Thank you to everyone that helped out over the weekend. It is you all that make this event happen, without you all support it would not take place. Their are over 150 volunteers that come out to help - for some it is long hours. We all appreciate. Numbers were down for some activities, as the rain on Saturday morning, stopped some from coming and participating. From what the weather man was saying and how it turned out was the best. Had so many visitors that came and told us how great the festival was. The balloon pilots put on a show even when they couldn't go up, did a candle stick glow and added a glow on Sat. evening (the winds did not want to lay down in the evenings). The grass was wet Sunday morning, but many went out and flew, and a coupled stayed sit up and tethered. Thank you to everyone.
