“Nobody can be uncheered with a balloon.”
-Winnie the Pooh
As usual, Winnie the Pooh is a font of timeless wisdom.
Think about it. Have you ever seen your kids frown or shed a tear while looking at a balloon? Now, imagine their faces if you supersized that colorful bubble of joy, multiplied it times a hundred, and set it loose to float through the skies over a gorgeous landscape. That’s the reaction you’ll get when you take your family to the Panguitch, Utah Balloon Festival! Make sure you schedule some family time this June to come participate in this fun local tradition!
