LISBON, N.Y. (WWNY) - Nothing says “we made it” like hundreds of balloons.

They were released Friday behind Lisbon schools on Friday to mark one year since schools first closed due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

School officials say they are trying to create more moments where people can just say “Yay!” again and to give everyone a chance to reflect on where they’ve been and where they’re going.

“Golden Knight Strong” was the day’s motto.

By the way, the balloons are biodegradable.
