This summer, New Hampshire Public Radio has been sharing some sounds of the summer.

One of the traditional family outings in the state is the 24th Annual Pittsfield Balloon Festival.

NHPR reporter Amy Quinton not only attended the event, but was able to catch a ride aboard the hot air balloon, the Lime Rickey.

She filed this audio postcard from the event.
