Balloona Vista a top weekend draw

The Rotary Club of Buena Vista, Colo., with the help of several local businesses including Tri-State member co-op Sangre De Cristo Electric Association, hosted the town’s fifth annual Balloona Vista event last weekend, drawing interest from the local community and surrounding areas. The Touchstone Energy balloon was included among the 15 balloon crews that participated in the three-day festival.

With spectacular Mount Princeton — one of Colorado’s famous 14ers — serving as a perfect backdrop, the pilots and crews met at the local rodeo grounds three straight mornings at 6 o’clock to take advantage of the perfect weather conditions for a sensational launch into a beautiful Colorado sky.

The Saturday evening “glow” drew the largest crowd, as approximately 200 people ventured out to see the magnificent site of several inflated — but tethered balloons — light up night at the fairgrounds while listening to music and enjoying refreshments offered by local vendors.
