In addition to gazing at airborne creations by balloonists from as far as Kentucky, festival-goers could also enjoy all the traditional amenities of a Central Illinois fair, from children’s activities and cool tchotchkes on sale to live music and food stands — not just corn dogs and fried everything, but also top-notch barbecue, with some interesting discoveries along the way, like Zeke’s Eats gourmet donuts.

The fun went well into the night, with a balloon glow at dusk and a laser light show after dark, and it’s all happening again today — the gates don’t close until 10:30 pm.
