Balloon Classic Underway, Weather Looks Good

(News/Talk 1480 WHBC) – It’s the Pro Football Hall of Fame Enshrinement Festival Balloon Classic all weekend.

There are 51 balloons with launch times at just after 6:30 a.m. and p.m. through Sunday morning.

Friday’s first launch went off just fine.

Balloonmeister Maury Sullivan says weather is a huge factor for them, so they have a team in place to study that.

That weather information will tell the pilot which of a number of landing sites will be in play…

AccuWeather says on the ground, there will be few clouds and winds will generally be less than 10 miles an hour this weekend.

Balloonists who landed in residential areas gave tethered rides to local kids, flying as high as 15 feet off the ground.
