Giant balloons are once again descending — and ascending, then descending again — into Flowery Branch. About 5,500 people are expected to attend the fifth annual Harvest Balloon Festival at Sterling on the Lake Oct. 18-19, with the majority of festivities taking place Saturday. A morning balloon launch is scheduled for Sunday.
