CAPE GAZETTE, Friday, February 28- March 6, 1997 - Milton Balloon Fest looking to nch on May 10 By Rosanne Pack With the calendar rolling into March, launch plans are warming up for the eighth annual Delmarva Hot Air Balloon and Crafts Festi- val. Set for Saturday, May 10, orga- nizers know that the time will fly until it&apos;s time to get the festival and the colorful balloons off the ground. Don Post, special events coordi- nator for the Sussex Chapter of the American Diabetes Associa- tion said he is aLready enthusiastic about the response so far to re- quests for sponsors and exhibitors. The Greenwood Trust Company, a member of the NOVUS Net- work, has signed on as a present- ing sponsor, and Milford Memori- al Hospital has committed as a Silver Sponsor. "We are hearing daily from peo- ple who want to buy advertising in our booklet; and we hope to get more sponsors," Post said. Ad sales in the booklet counts as one of the major fundraisers for the annual event that benefits the ADA. Post said some reservations for full page ads, such as the one placed by Beebe Hospital, have Li'l Abner Continued from page 54 made from berries that only come from a tree in front of the Yokum residence. This tonic, evidenfly, is the rea- son why Li'l Abner is so big and handsome while others in the town don't measure up to his physical attributes. Complicating the situation is millionaire business tycoon Gen- eral Bullmoose, played by junior Scan Fahey, who with his girl- friend, Appassionata (senior Cede Tortes), set out to steal the rights to the famous Yokumberry Tonic. already come in. "We sent our ad information out recently," he said. "We are getting a good response to that as well as to the announcements for vendor space. We are sending out five or six applications a day for vendor space. "We are getting really excited! I'm not sure where we'll put everyone, but there will be space for all. And the visitors to the fes- tival will really benefit from the numbers and the variety of ex- hibitors ." The festival attracts more than 125 craft, art and food vendors each year, and booth space rental is another major source of funding for the event. The main draw of the festival is the gathering of 25 hot air bal- loons. Reservations are already being taken for morning hot air balloon rides at $150 a person. Weather permitting, there will be tethered balloon rides during the day. Literally a highlight of the event is the Evening Glow when tethered balloons are inflated and illuminated simultaneously.
