Thursday evening, Symphony of
Lincoln hosted their 15th annual Balloon Festival Kick-off Party in
the parking lot of the nursing facility on the north end of town. Symphony is located just feet from the Logan County Airport, so
guests enjoyed a meal courtesy of Symphony, they got a chance to see the media night balloons inflating and
Symphony staff helped with
serving food, which consisted of barbecue sandwiches, green beans,
coleslaw, chips and a selection of cookies.
Several chose to eat inside at
the guest dining area, but many more made their way outside to the
large tent where the local band Rusted Guns was playing a variety of
music from good old rock 'n' roll, to country and western.
The Guns is normally
made up of Bill Treakle, Terry Miller, Jeff Letterle and Rick
Letterle. On Thursday, Bill Treakle Jr. was standing in at the
guitar for Terry Miller.
While some enjoyed their meal
at tables provided under the tent, others brought their lawn chairs
and lined the fence on the north side of the parking lot.
The kids had a great time with
their snow cones and cotton candy, and new this year, Symphony was
giving away Frisbees, which everyone seemed to enjoy and appreciate.
