It Happened In Cleveland

There has been a lot of talk and deep web research concerning balloons around here lately. A party approaches.

The issue of balloon release is currently being debated on legal, social and moral levels and while googling advanced balloon release techniques I stumbled upon this.

It happened at Balloonfest 1986, in where else, Cleveland.

Chaos at the mistake by the lake.

The cornucopia or horn of plenty is Thanksgiving’s enduring symbol of abundance. It comes to us today from the very earliest of ancient Greek oral-poetic traditions. This symbol goes back…quite simply it goes all the way back. Read all about it on Wikipedia.

(FACTOID – The iPhone was invented much later.)

It’s always been about tie-ins and corporate cross marketing. Look for the new GAP balloon this year, a massive “balloon” shaped balloon in tan.

The Holidays are a time for costumes but Pilgrim is out. The kids will be wearing a First Nations, Native American / American Indian look this year. “We’re sorry we stole your world,” is the sentiment behind the feathers and paint. ( “We love your casinos though.” )
