Get ready for Excellent Adventure (Bill and Ted not included) and the Waddling Penguin. The two balloons have been added to the lineup for the Duluth Hot Air Balloon Festival, which will feature balloons from the Midwest at Bayfront Festival Park from Sept. 20-22.
Know your balloons:
The Waddling Penguin is a 1980 Raven hot-air balloon piloted by Brad and Colette Vandergon. It’s one of the oldest flying balloons in Minnesota and the oldest of the festival.
Jill & Tedd’s Excellent Adventure — a nod to the 1989 film “Bill & Ted’s Excellent Adventure” — is owned by Jill Maxfield and flown by Tedd Maxfield.
