August 18, 2018

LEWISTON, Maine (AP) — Organizers of the Great Falls Balloon Festival in Lewiston and Auburn are hoping that the weather holds for weekend launches.

Weather forecasters say rain is likely Saturday with a chance of thunderstorms, potentially creating problems for the balloons.

The rest of the festival events are expected to go on as scheduled and, rain or shine. Music, food, and belly dancing are among the events.

This year’s theme, Rock Around the Park, will bring Elvis Presley to Lewiston in the form of an impersonator and a balloon.
