The 2010 Arkansas Valley Balloon Festival

The 2010 Arkansas Valley Balloon Festival was hosted at the Rocky Ford Highschool Football Field, as it had been for many years priviously. It was a cold November morning, which is good for ballooning. Per usual there was a large crowd to watch the twenty or so balloons prepare for launch and lift off into the Southeastern Colorado skies.

The Arkansas Valley Balloon Festival has been a longstanding tradition in Southeast Colorado thanks to it's volunteer board of directors and the many volunteers who help make it happen. SECO News would like to thank everyone involved in the Arkansas Valley Balloon Festival for their dedication to the community and to bringing such an exciting event to Southeast Colorado.

Everyone at SECO News is standing behind the Arkansas Valley Balloon Festival Committee and Volunteers. It is with warm wishes and in honor of our fond memories that we share our Arkansas Valley Balloon Festival 2020 Tribute Series...
