A Marcy couple's hot air balloon engagement is right out of a fairytale. Derek Schmitzer got down on bended knee inside the balloon to pop the question before he and his fiancé, Danielle Owen floated over central New York.
Have you ever wanted to take a hot air balloon ride? Or maybe you've always been fascinated by the idea of giant balloons. Either way you're going to want to mark your calendar for the Adirondack Balloon Festival.
Next Saturday, May 21, is the first-ever Mohawk Aviation Day at Griffis International Airport. The event, sponsored by MVCC's Aviation program, will bring vintage aircraft, hot air balloons and a military fly-by to Griffis. And it's FREE.
