Tech Night at Pops Balloon Drop

Tech Night at Pops is MIT's longest-running reunion tradition--115 years and counting!--and perhaps the most beloved. While the musical program changes, one tradition constant: the balloon drop set to the accompaniment of "Stars and Stripes Forever."

If you've never seen it, it's quite something. Many thanks to Sandy Laeser (wife of Dick Laeser '62) for the video.
