The inaugural Champaign County Balloon Festival is just under one month away. The charity event will take place at Dodds Park, with proceeds going to local children’s services like Crisis Nursery, Cunningham Children’s Home, and more. Patrons of all ages are welcome to watch up to 15 hot air balloons take flight, enjoy carnival rides and games, food vendors and even take a tethered balloon ride. Stick around past sundown and watch the balloons glow light up the night. For more details, check out their website.
