Duluth balloon festival barely clears windy weekend

Krista Burns via Northland NewsCenter

Windy conditions threatened to deflate Duluth’s first-ever hot air balloon event, Le Festival des Montgolfières à Duluth, this weekend, but the first (albeit tethered) balloon lift over Duluth in 125 years had taken place.

So, “flight.” Kind of.

It turns out that a port city with lots of wind, a giant frigid lake and radio towers standing sentry over the metropolis’s massive hill, is kind of a tough place to have a balloon festival. Northland’s News Center, WDIO, and the Duluth News Tribune all reported on the hijinks.

But, balloons!
