This weekend a bunch of hot air balloons will fill the skies in East Moline.

The Quad Cities Balloon Festival returns to the Rock Island County Fairgrounds starting Friday. Balloonmeister Darrell Day joined us in studio to talk more about what you can all see and do at the event. The Rock Island County Fairgrounds are on Archer Driver just south of Avenue of the Cities in East Moline. Both Friday and Saturday the gates open at 4 p.m. and the balloon launches are tentatively set for 5:15. For more information including volunteer opportunities, click here.
