The Harmony Jubilee is a re-creation of a festival that previously highlighted our communityís heritage through history, art, and drama. While successful, it was apparent that we needed a new and larger component to be the central focus. Earlier this year, we began the redevelopment of the jubilee. Then on March 19, tragedy struck our community. Balloonist Ed Ristaino was killed after a rapidly building thunderstorm pulled Edís hot air balloon into its updraft. During this tragic event, Ed lost his life while selflessly saving the lives of others.
It is the desire of the Harmony Jubilee Planning Committee to honor Ed Ristaino by dedicating the hot air balloon aspect of the weekend to his memory.
