If those clear blue fall skies look inviting these days, there’s a way to get a closer look at them. The third annual Harvest Balloon Festival is set for Saturday, Oct. 20, at the Sterling on the Lake community in Flowery Branch. The fall festival is held in the Village Green, and includes balloon rides and other family-friendly activities to benefit local charities.
