Thank You, Thank You, Thank You!!!

Balloons Over Vermilion would like to thank our sponsors, patrons, volunteers and vendors for providing another exciting weekend at Vermilion Regional Airport. 

A record crowd Friday night witnessed a beautiful balloon launch, followed by an outstanding and colorful balloon glow.  In between our patrons were entertained by Joyful Bubbles, the Amazing Giants stilt walkers, Touch A Truck exhibit and a new and exciting carnival.

The beer tent provided wonderful sounds and refreshments all weekend and smiles were aplenty.

Thanks again to all who participated and we will see you all back 2022!
