The last few starts to our Lincoln Art & Balloon Festival haven't met with very good weather. Although winds were too brisk to launch any balloons, the night was perfect to get things started at the Logan County Airport and at Maple Ridge Care Centre and Retirement Village.


A balloonist stays on duty even when he doesn't have a balloon to pilot.

Free food at Maple Ridge Care Centre historically brings a long line.


This young lady's face tells you just how much fun all of this is.

If you are going to have a festival, you have to have some cotton candy.


And let's not forget the snow cones.


The line keeps moving inside Maple Ridge.



This pair is all smiles as they listen to the music.


Hey, mister. Haven't you ever seen a guy eat pulled pork before?
