Everytime I see a commercial with D.V. usually it is during the release of the Balloons


Agree. Not the same.***

We replaced the balloons with fireworks near the ring of honor. We had them there for the duke game. It still doesn’t replace the balloons though, I’m thinking of a rising , and spinning pedestal for the rock to come up out of the ground, rising up out of the fog...That would be the only thing that would come close to replacing the balloons.


Wasn't our baloons biodegradable ...

what was the reason again that they stopped it ? it must have been more about the expense or the logistics ….

The environment is going to #### and we're literally sending rubber into the sky for no good reason but to amuse ourselves. Get over it, in retrospect, it's embarrassing that we did it for so long. The new fireworks are great.

...those evil orange balloons. Killing mother's nature and such. Take a deep breath in a brown paper bag and chillax.

Perfectly happy and relaxed with the decision to stop the balloons. I'd simply recommend that we all get past this - it was a cool tradition, that had its time, and I'm sure we all remember it fondly.

I think we can all agree, as proud Clemson alums/fans, that we love our foothills first and foremost, so I'm glad we're looking out for them.

This is extremely short sighted. I am sure that sometime

in the future, we will discover that the pyrotechnics used in the fireworks sucked some subprotozoan microorganism out of the atmosphere that was necessary for the unhealthy reproduction of mutated snail darter minnows somewhere in the mountains above us. Shame on us.

You're thinking too small- We need to launch 2 or 3 large hot-air balloons or one gigantic orange blimp.


I do not miss......

...the balloon release, the country gentleman, shaved heads, rat season, the battle flag, singing Dixie, Dans Duty, dorms w/out a/c, hitchhiking, Saturday classes, the 'mic man', Harcomb and many other things whose time has come and gone.
