FRANKLIN – Idaho Days has been a tradition to Franklin County since the early 1900s. Since then, it has continued to grow and attract different vendors and talents from around the area. Magician and balloon artist Steven Viator was among the new acts to perform at the festival last week.
Originally from Logan, Viator began making balloon art five years ago.
“I actually got into this because my son got a magic kit for his birthday,” Viator said. “I read all the rules and got into magic and from that I got into balloon art and it became a hobby.”
Although it was his first year as a vendor at Idaho Days, it was not Viator’s first time at the festival. “I came here last year for the fun,” Viator said. “It’s a lot of fun. There are great people here and a lot of activities.”
When he’s not performing at festivals, Viator focuses on his studies.
“I’m a student at Utah State in economics,” he said. “I hope to graduate next year and continue to do this as a hobby.”
