Town of Dickinson, NY (WBNG Binghamton) Bold colors decorated the sky as balloons launched from Otsiningo Park.

Below, a huge crowd gathered to watch the action.

It wouldn't be Spiedie Fest without the balloon launch. After they didn't take off Friday due to poor weather conditions, pilots and bystanders were very excited to catch the evening launch.

"I thought it was great," said Stacey Barnes, of Massachusetts. "We had a perfect view of it. Six in a row were blowing up simultaneously. I've never seen anything like it. It was pretty great."

Barnes and her family drove six hours to see the launch.

On Sunday, the balloons will launch at 6:30 a.m. and 6:30 p.m.
