Like magic, after the Saturday 2:30 p.m. announcement that there would be a launch at 3 p.m., hundreds of people appeared on launch field at E.P. Rock Elementary School. About 30 hot-air balloons lifted off. Winds aloft were not strong, so most of them traveled only a short distance. (Hudson Star-Observer photo by Margarent A. Ontl)
Hudson Hot Air Affair scenes
The 25th-annual Hudson Hot Air Affair celebration took place over the week-end of Feb. 7-9. By all accounts, a good time was had by those who participated in the many activities. The hot-air balloons made a successful launch on Saturday afternoon.
