One of the biggest events every year in Hudson is the Hot Air Affair, which brings dozens of hot air balloons and thousands of people to Hudson every winter. Held annually on the first weekend of February, the Hudson Hot Air Affair has evolved into a community-wide event that includes much more than just the launching of hot air balloons. From fireworks and a parade, to a craft fair and local fundraisers, there's something for everybody to enjoy during the Hot Air Affair.

On this episode of St. Croix Stories, we hear from two people who have been involved with the Hudson Hot Air Affair for a long time: John Knutson, one of the event's five founders, and Ken Walter, a balloonist from the Milwaukee area who has been bringing his balloons to Hudson for 20 years.
