The Spirit of Allegany County

The Spirit of Allegany County is an Aerostar 105 hot air balloon made completely in Sioux Falls, SD. It was designed by renowned Vermont artist Sabra Field and beautifully depicts the hills and valleys of Allegany County. The lower portion depicts one of Allegany County's lakes, complete with sailboats. The fabric of the lake is silver Mylar which reflects a beautiful golden hue in the early and late day sun.

The Spirit of Allegany County began its "Celebration of Life in Allegany County" tour in February 2002, visiting cites, attractions and events throughout the northeastern United States.
