Thurston Classic returns to Crawford County

Local News

It’s up, up and away in Crawford County this weekend; the area’s largest hot air balloon festival – the Thurston Classic – returns for another year.

Ballooning has a long history in Meadville, thanks to the Thurston family.
The tradition continues this weekend with more than two dozen elaborate hot air balloons.

The event kicks off tonight with the night glow, and runs through Sunday.
