VINCENNES, Ind. (WTWO/WAWV) – The Vincennes United Way and Valley Party Supply showcased the Big Balloon Build on Saturday.

Over 65 artists from around the world teamed up to build the large balloon structures that filled the Highland Woods Community Center. Nearly two years of planning was needed to bring the Big Balloon Build to life.

Visitors were asked to bring can goods as admission to see the balloon structures.

The United Way’s goal was to fill nine food banks with those donations. Officials with the United Way said that they broke that goal just two hours after the seven hour event began.
