Balloons returned on Saturday to spread color and fun across the skies of Ripon. The annual Color the Skies Hot Air Balloon and Kite Festival at Mistlin Sports Park continues today, a fundraiser for Children’s Hospital Central California in Madera. Last year’s festival was changed to a kite show only, because of construction at the park. This year, the tethered balloon rides are back, beginning at 7:30 a.m. The event also includes entertainment, kite shows, train rides and food.
