Hot air balloon in Coolidge Park with the Delta Queen behind.

We were delighted yesterday to find a hot air balloon being put up right in Coolidge Park beside the boat. They were offering tickets for short lifts up and then back down. Cool!

There’s always something happening here in the park. They symphony plays the Independence Day concert here, accompanied by the city’s fireworks display. Summer Saturdays, families gather with picnics and blankets to enjoy movies projected on a big screen. Every afternoon, and especially on the weekends, the park is bustling with energetic crowds savoring the view. And the Delta Queen has become a centerpiece for all of this.

It’s great to see a community take such full advantage of a lovely city park.
