Balloons Over Vermilion organizers are very pleased with the results of the third annual event in Vermilion County. There were approximately 16,500 guests over the two-day event at the Vermilion County Regional Airport, plus thousands who followed balloon flights from cars and lawn chairs in many locations.
Mother nature wiped out some events on Saturday night. But there were several successful launches, a balloon glow and a laser light show both nights. The balloon pilots have already expressed a desire to return to Danville.
There also were happy vendors and bands, a successful kid play zone and educational opportunities. Formal planning has already begun for next year’s Balloons Over Vermilion, scheduled for Friday, July 12 and Saturday, July 13.
