Floating freely Balloon Classic now on its own The Greater Kershaw County Chamber of Commerce has cut loose the tether on the Palmetto Balloon Classic, and next year it will soar on its own. In a unanimous vote taken at Thursday’s chamber meeting, the board voted to make the annual balloon festival a separate entity…. A board of 15 will govern the festival… One major advantage of being a separate entity… is it will give the board a full year to work on the balloon festival.... Organizers called this year’s Palmetto Balloon Classic a phenomenal success, making up for a dismal 1983 event, which was almost completely rained out.
