Hot air balloons in Roswell this weekend

You may not find spaceships in the sky in Roswell this weekend, but the clouds can expect some company.

The 28th annual Old Timers Balloon Rally takes place Saturday and Sunday.

Seventy balloons, pilots, and crews plan on coming to town from the southwest and the midwest.

The balloons inflate at the Cielo Grande Recreation Area on West College on the northwest side of the soccer fields. This happens at 6:30 in the morning both days.

Some children don’t have to wait until then. Balloons inflate and take off from some local schools tomorrow morning at 7 o’clock.

Proceeds from the rally benefit charities in Roswell.
