Lisle’s “Eyes to the Skies” Festival Gone for Good??

After a dozen years of hot air balloons, music and fun, it looks like one of the more unique festivals in the area is gone for good!

The Eyes to the Skies committee released a press release today that said, in part, that due to the lack of interest and community support has caused the festival to disband.

So does that mean Lisle won’t have it’s own Fourth of July celebration?

Not necessarily!

The press release went on to say the village and park district will work together to put on a smaller event on July 4th weekend.

Eyes to the Skies has raised more than a million dollars for local charities since it started in 2009.

Here’s the entire statement released on social media today.
