QUINCY, Ill. (WGEM) -

 

All eyes were on the sky in Macomb this weekend for the 27th annual Macomb Balloon Rally.

Hundreds of onlookers came out to Vince Grady Field on WIU'S campus to see 23 brightly colored hot air balloons. 

 

The hot air balloonists took off from various locations around town and all  floated over to the field. The balloonists come from all over the Midwest, and officials say the event brings big business to the community. 

The event wrapped up Saturday with the popular balloon glow as well as live music performances.
