Longtime Lodians might remember waking up on Sept. 1 to see the sky filled with massive hot air balloons. The spectacle was the early morning kickoff for Field and Fair Day, an annual fundraiser for the Hutchins Street Square Foundation. It was absent for 15 years, but is making an enthusiastic return this year on Labor Day.
“People have a lot of memories associated with building support for the Square,” said Meghan Lange, who is organizing the event. “It’s a family based event open to all of Lodi, and it’s a great tradition for kids.
