The Eh? desk just got word that Lindy officially has committed to an appearance in Duluth this fall. Lindy has all the characteristics of a precocious celebrity: she wears sunglasses everywhere, requires special accommo­dations and insists on being called one name, a la Cher and Madonna. Lindy is a hot-air balloon.

In addition to Lindy, Kaleidoscope, Cap’n Boo and Rainbow Connection have committed to appear at Bayfront Festival Park from Sept. 20-22 for the Duluth Hot Air Balloon Festival. In total, 11 balloons will be tethered at Duluth’s first hot-air balloon festival.
