The Friday evening pilots' briefing informed everyone what they already knew: The winds were too strong for a balloon launch.

Joan Parker of Logan County Title and balloonist Max Mitchell have been balloon fest partners all 20 years of the event.


The crowd hears the news that there will be no launch, but the balloon glow is still possible.

Youngsters try their hand at mountain climbing in the amusement section at the airport.

The Big Boss Twang band plays for the patrons at the balloon fest beer tent.

The Dodge Ram balloon braved the winds to put on a show for visitors hoping to see a balloon glow.

Mounted auxiliary police were on duty all night at Latham Park to provide security for the artists and their artwork.
