On Friday, June 10th several local media outlets were invited to fly over Sulphur Springs in hot air balloons! Six different balloons were inflated and sent up with pilots and a maximum of two passengers. KSST interns were sent up in “Spirit in the Sky”. The balloon was covered in beautiful colors that depicted birds, a large mask, a fish, and several other smaller creatures. The flight began in the Sulphur Springs Middle School parking lot and concluded on a paved driveway near Raven Aerostar.
The first Hot Air Balloon Rally and Flight will take place tonight, June 10th, at 6 pm on the grounds of Shannon Oaks Church, weather permitting. On Saturday, June 11th, the second Rally and Flight will begin at 6:30 am, and the third at 6 pm. Opening Ceremonies for the Dairy Festival will be at noon, June 10th, on Celebration Plaza as well.
