Despite the forecast of rain, the annual SARC Family Fun Day drew a crowd to the Harford County Equestrian Center on Tollgate Road in Bel Air Saturday afternoon.

Though the day was supposed to feature hot air balloons, the mid-day winds that kicked up and threat of rain meant they couldn't go up in the air. Balloon owners still had their baskets set up, and let children and adults climb in to see what it was like, but the colorful balloons were grounded, not even out of their bags.

The night before, however, they lit up the skies over Bulle Rock Golf Course for the "Rising Above It" gala.

Saturday's fun day included a small petting zoo with pigs, goats, a pony and lots of puppies. Children, and adults if they so chose, could ride a horse around the ring.

The day also featured games, food and a number of local vendors selling their products.
