The skies in Meadville will be lit up with hot air balloons tonight. It’s the kick-off to the 29th annual Thurston Classic.
10 balloons are at the classic this year, including Claw-D, the giant crab. Balloons are inflated and tethered down, appearing as giant lightbulbs floating in the sky.
The Thurston classic continues all weekend at Allegheny College in Meadville.
