While the balloon did not get off the ground, we still had a wonderful time at the Strawberry Festival this year.  Thank you to the Croton Falls Fire Department, Jo Ann Brown (spinner), Michael Blum (balloonist who was there and showed up how it all works, when the weather is behaving, that is!), Chez Leonard for delicious hot dogs and everyone else who made the day such fun!  Here are some photos!
