(One of the most beautiful events of the year)….It is an Air Balloon Festival in Yuma.
This year’s event got off to a rocky start Friday. It was at the Colorado River Crossing Balloon Festival. One of the majestic balloons was attempting a landing, when it hit a power line. The passengers and the pilots had to be rescued from the Balloon. No injuries were reported. Saturday the Balloons were to take to the air, and give balloon rides to the public. The wind did not cooperate, and the Balloons were not able to lift off, much less give any rides.
