Balloon event set for June

Staff reports

A hot air balloon rises into the cloudy afternoon sky over the town of Windsor last summer. A balloon fest in the works for the town of Windsor in the summer of 2014.

Windsor's Water Valley will be the location for the inaugural Picture The Sky Balloon Event and Photo Contest coming up in June.

Between 15 and 20 hot air balloons will grace the sky on the mornings of June 7 and 8. In addition, be sure to come back for the Balloon Torch and Glow celebration on Saturday evening.

Local businesses and individuals are being sought as sponsors for the pilots that will come to Windsor for this first-time event. Sponsors will receive the benefit of advertising at the event, as well as access to VIP viewing areas and other perks. If you have always wanted to fly in a hot air balloon, this could be your most exciting opportunity.
