COMING TO A SKY NEAR YOU! Four local pilots flew from the Cool Spring Balloonport, east of Statesville, last night as a preview of Lifting Spirits Around the World...This weekend, our pilots and many others around the world will join together as a symbol of thanks, with balloon launches called Lifting Spirits Around the World. Independent balloonists from around the world will take flight on these two days, flooding social media with pictures and videos of their flights, with one goal – thanking frontline and essential workers. Balloons put smiles on the faces of young and old and with the postponement of the 49th Albuquerque International Balloon Fiesta, we applaud the efforts of those pilots planning and participating in Lifting Spirits Around the World.

Kristie and Charles have been ballooning, it seems like forever, but really only since 1981. This blog is a running log of fun flights and adventures in and around the Greater Cool Spring International Balloon Port and Space Museum, our home. Enjoy!
