Some of these balloons included: Wonder, RE/MAX, Garden Spot Village, PNC Bank, Captain America and Elvis. When the majority of the balloons had launched, they made for a very photogenic, nice backdrop against the summer skies.

Following the balloon launch, there was a concert and fireworks two of the three days. The big name artists included Andy Grammer, Lifehouse and Credence Clearwater Revisited and played for around an hour. Finally, the spectacular fireworks ended off the nights with around a half hour long firework display.
