More than 40,000 people showed up at Point Mallard in Decatur over Memorial Day weekend to attend Alabama’s largest and oldest hot air balloon festival, the Alabama Jubilee Hot Air Baloon Classic.

The event was started in Decatur in 1978 as a showcase to kick off Alabama’s tourism season. The Jubilee now draws, on average, about 60 pilots from more than 20 states.
