For the 11th year in a row, hundreds of balloon animal artists will share their skills during the annual Balloons Around the World event, organized by Jeff Brown. Balloons around the World is designed to highlight the activity of giving, deliver smiles and showcase the art of balloon twisting and decorating.
Locally, Balloon Master Jeff Brown will be twisting balloons 10 a.m. on Wednesday, Oct. 6 at the Juneau Pioneer Home and then heading out around town to brighten peoples' day.
