2016 – 2019
Balloon Stories 2019
Calm Before… Will it be windy? Will there be balloons? We’ll see. Now waiting for the inflation hordes.
Inflated Spirit… They’re back. The inflation people. Filling Central Park West from 73rd. Four blocks to see the blowing up of the balloons. Frank Sinatra & Mariah Carey blaring them on. The crowd crawl is about a block an hour.
Most seem to be having fun. Maybe this is the only way to see the big balloons this year. Hope not!
11/28 Balloon Crawl… Well the balloons “flew”?! As the gusts almost blew them apart. Even lower than last year. Flat crawl. But. Hey. They went.
