GREENWICH, Conn. -- High winds grounded the hot air balloons but not the fun during the annual Greenwich Land Trust Go Wild! event Sunday at the Greenwich Polo Club.
"We can't take the balloons up because the wind is pushing it (the flames) sideways," balloon captain Paul Sena said. "It would burn the balloon."
While he couldn't take his balloon up in the air, he did entertain people by firing off his burner and sending flames into the air.
The annual event is the fundraiser for the Greenwich Land Trust. It owns or manages about 750 acres throughout Greenwich, preventing it from being developed.
The Land Trust recently celebrated its move into its new office in a home on the Mueller Preserve on Round Hill Road.
