Description: On a cold morning in 2002, a 3rd grade girl released a purple helium balloon in the sky over Ogden, Utah. Amazingly, a man walking his dog found the balloon 3 days later -- in Niagara Falls, New York! The question of why, and not how, the balloon made it nearly 2,000 miles led this man to an epiphany. Local writer Frank T. Croisdale realized that the balloon symbolized the best qualities of all Western new Yorkers. It was resilient, determined and driven by fate.
