Crowds of children accompanied by parents came to Lake Country Business Park next to Clarksville Elementary School on Thursday evening to experience a ride in a hot air balloon. However, due to two approaching storms in the area, the hot air balloon activity had to be cancelled.  However, that did not dampen the spirits of children who were sitting in the shade underneath the trees along the edge of the road enjoying large cups of ice cream. Children also took to the large open field to play Frisbee games and had time to take a tour of a Clarksville fire truck.
