Argyle Elementary School Tether Day

Wednesday, September 18th, 2013

Yesterday and today were tether demo days for the Hartford and Argyle Elementary Schools. Baker and I have been doing these for a long time, during the week of the Adirondack Balloon Festival. We thoroughly enjoy bringing our balloon to the elementary school kids so they can see one up-close, and the smiles on all the kiddies faces.

There was a lot of fog down in the valley on the drive over, but Argyle had beautiful blue skies and calm winds for our demo for the elementary kiddies.

Argyle Balloon Demo Day

Tuesday, September 11th, 2012

This morning was beautiful for our annual balloon demo day for the Argyle CS Elementary kiddies. Baker and I travel to a few of the rural schools every year and bring our hot air balloon for a complementary tether for the Elementary schools in the fall, close to the big Adirondack Balloon Festival. Many of these kids never get a chance to get up close to a hot air balloon, so we bring the balloon to them.
