Balloon Classic

By Kelly Sparks | 

The 2003 U.S. Bank Balloon Classic took place over the weekend at the Bowling Green-Warren County Airport.

There was a large crowd in attendance to watch more than 50 hot air balloons rise into the sky. Pilots came from as many as six different states to fly their balloons. In addition to balloon rides there were a wide variety of activities you could participate in.

A new addition that was added to this years' event was the U.S. Bank Golf Classic presented by Outback Steakhouse and WBKO. Proceeds will go to scholarship funds for Western Kentucky University Student-Athletes.
