PLAINVILLE, CT (WFSB) -

Eyewitness News went for a ride in an hot air balloon that went across central Connecticut.  

The final day of the 32nd annual Balloon Festival kicked off on Sunday morning,

The event is sponsored the Plainville Fire Company.

Jim Lenois, who is co-chair for the festival, said the event comes at a great time.

"It's the last weekend of the summer before the kids go back to school. I think balloons fascinate people. We are fascinated by them so it's kind of been our thing for 32 years," Lenois previously told Eyewitness News.

The majority of money raised will go back towards the community.
