Breakfast with the Balloons

One of the most popular events of the annual Kingsport Fun Fest is "Breakfast with the Balloons". The overcast weather and low visibility prevented the launch, but still, approximately 10 balloons were inflated to give spectators a chance to see the fascinating process of preparing the balloon for launch (takes only 10-15 minutes).  Fun Fest concludes tonight with a Lynyrd Skynyrd concert and a fireworks display.

You must live in the present, launch yourself on every wave, find your eternity in each moment.
--Henry David Thoreau (1817-1862) American Essayist, Poet and Philosopher.
