Friday evening could not have been a more perfect evening at the Logan County Airport. The first launch of balloons for the weekend went off without a hitch, much to the delight of hundreds of spectators who have waited all year for one of their favorite Logan County activities to return.

As the balloons took to the skies, they headed west into the sunset and then almost appeared to stall in midair. The result was that in the end nearly every balloon was visible in the sky in silhouette.
