The event, hosted each year by the Erie Chamber of Commerce, brought a few hot air balloons out to County Road 5and ready to soar in to clear skies. However, because of conditions in a field traditionally used for the event, balloon owners and participants modified their plans and setup at Erie High School for a quick ground burn.

It was a welcomed sight for attendees a bit disappointed from the scrubbed launch.
