Balloon Ascension in South Tacoma - 50 years ago balloon ascension in South Tacoma were a Sunday afternoon attraction. In the picture shown above the balloon is about to take off with the balloonist and is being held by the spectators to get the last ounce of gas. The picture was taken between Warner and Birmingham Streets near 52nd. Pioneers in the district will remember the stunt was not too successful as the gas often burned up the balloon.
