Nov 13, 2014
Tuesday, November 11, 2014, will forever be remembered as the day that completely transformed the way Veterans’ Day is celebrated in Snellville, Georgia. At 7:00 pm more than 400 people gathered in front of the recently completed Snellville Veterans’ Memorial to honor our nation’s military veterans, and witness the 1st annual Veterans’ Day Balloon Launch. Approximately 200 balloons, illuminated by flashing, multicolored LEDs ascended into the night sky creating an unforgettable sight. As the balloons rose, they were carried eastward by a light breeze and within a few minutes, they transformed the night sky into a light show reminiscent of the Milky Way.
