As a balloon drifts by, the moon can be seen in the bottom part of the frame. The hot-air balloons were a fabulous site as they floated across the sky Friday night. Some children who live in Sandy Creek were seen running down Harwood Drive chasing the balloons and waving up to those riding in the baskets. Many residents came out of their houses and drivers stopped their cars to snap shots with their cell phones.
Two balloons take off over the fairgrounds during the first night of the Oswego County Balloon Fest.
One of the most colorful balloons is shown right after its takeoff on the first night of the Oswego County Balloon Fest at the fairgrounds in Sandy Creek. Hundreds of people were on hand to watch the balloons, listen to live music, eat food and visit the bounce house and petting zoo.
