In conjunction with the start of the 47th Flow Carolina Balloonfest, hot-air balloons launched early Friday morning on G.L. Wilson Building Company’s property located just off Old Mocksville Road. Employees, friends, family, pets and neighbors all came out to enjoy the show. A longtime supporter of ballooning, G.L. Wilson has close relationships with local balloonists and is an advocate for the tradition and history of ballooning in our area.

“It was a beautiful weekend to celebrate ballooning. Thanks to all of our local pilots and chase crews for everything they do to continue such a fine tradition in Iredell County!” said Julia Wilson, vice president of G.L. Wilson.
