Balloons Tunes and BBQ 8


Alyse Young/HERALD

Dee Knuth and husband Paul Knuth lead a Sunny-D Mimosa toast at the end of the 25th annual Balloons, Tunes and BBQ event. Champagne toasts are a staple tradition of hot air balloon races tracing back to legends of balloonists using the drink as a peace offering to the farmers whose fields the balloonists crashed in.
