Here are photos and links to a Bangor Daily News story on the Crown of Maine Balloon Festival.
It was held this weekend, so plan for next year. While I would NEVER get into a balloon – I covered too many balloon mishaps in 23 years as a journalist – it does look like it was great fun. And there were other activities that went along with this year’s event.
I’ve also included a link to the festival’s website for those who are really interested.
And the photos come via Kelly McInnis, a high school classmate who still lives in The County. The photos are reprinted here with her permission.
