This year the Salina Eyes to the Sky Balloon Festival will be held June 17-19, 2016. Funding is in place and the balloon pilots are excited to come. However, the lead organizer, Paula Martin, has taken an early retirement from Sevier County and will no longer be organizing this event. Paula has commented that she would hope that the residents of Salina City would step up and grow the Balloon Festival to be bigger and better.
Mayor Deaton has organized a meeting for anyone interested in helping with the Balloon Festival. This meeting will be held Tuesday, March 15, 2016 at 7:00 pm upstairs at the North Sevier Community Center.
We want to keep this event happening in our community so we need volunteers to keep it afloat. Don’t miss this meeting and bring your ideas and/or suggestions. We look forward to a great festival for many years to come.
