This past summer, Smarty Pants premiered a brand new edition of The Big Balloon Show at public libraries and park districts all over Illinois. Titled “A Midsummer’s Night Balloon,” this medieval themed balloon stage show featured a beautiful balloon princess, a valiant balloon knight plucked from the audience, a dangerous balloon dragon and a great finale paying homage to William Tell’s famous archery exploits.
Before the show premiered on June 4th at the Palatine Public Library, WGN-TV featured Smarty Pants on their Chicago area morning news program. A regularly featured personality on WGN, Smarty Pants teamed with Ana Belaval and Dean Richards to preview some of the Midsummer’s Night Balloon show.
You can catch all the great footage from the day’s broadcast on the link below. Keep watching WGN morning news – Smarty Pants will appear again on Friday August 5th, 2011!
