Hot Air Balloon Stuck At Millennium Park

CHICAGO (CBS) — A hot air balloon got stuck on a lamppost at Millennium Park early Friday.

The Airheads balloon has been floating around Chicago and passing out samples of candy downtown, as part of a marketing campaign, according to spokeswoman Chelsea Slaggert.

The balloon got stuck on a lamppost at Millennium Park early Friday, along Michigan Avenue near Madison Street.

Barricades had been erected around the deflated balloon as crews worked to remove it from the park.
