What a great evening for a ribbon cut at the 2016 Lincoln Balloon Festival. The official ribbon cut for this year's festival took place Thursday evening at the Logan County Airport as part of the Media Night event. On hand were members of the Lincoln/Logan County Chamber of Commerce/Logan County Alliance, Chamber Ambassadors, representatives from the city of Lincoln, and the 2016 Miss Logan County Fair Queen Michelle Paulus and Little Miss Logan County Paisley Baker. After the singing of the National Anthem by local vocal artist Lesleigh Bennett, the Queen and Little Miss snipped the ribbon for the festival to begin. Because of the direction of the wind, balloonists decided to leave town for their inflation and then fly into the airport. This year Lincoln Daily News' Angela Reiners took the flight with local balloonist Jim Ireland.
