Easter in the Air

Dave Garton

On Easter Sunday we had a spectacular Easter in the Air at Buckhorn Valley. With the help of many volunteers, we lofted 800 candy-filled plastic eggs attached to little individual parachutes out of the Camelot hot air balloon.

Everything went smoothly, although when there is candy floated down from the sky, even the politest kids tend to turn into piranhas. It was quite a sight.

Many thanks go to Rick Johnson at Wagner Rents and Gary Meenach for donating their equipment for this event. It was an admirable display of community-mindedness.

See you next year at Easter in the Air.
