The Balloon Classic Walldog mural depicts balloons that actually flew at the event.  Look closely at the participants, some may be familiar to area residents.

Freight and passenger service was a key element in the growth of industry and population.  The train depicted is likely “The Dixieland” that stopped in Danville on its trek from Chicago to Florida.

The artist used shades of purple to provide greater definition of detail when painting the locomotive itself.  He has produced a limited number of signed and numbered prints of his mural.

Kickapoo State Recreation Area is an Illinois state park on in Vermilion County, Illinois, United States. Located just outside Danville, Illinois, this park is easily accessible through route I-74. It is away from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign and from Indianapolis. According to the Illinois Department of Natural Resources, the name Kickapoo originated from the Kickapoo village that once existed near the junction of the Salt Fork and Middle Fork branches of the Vermilion River. After Europeans settled in the area and displaced the Native Americans, the Europeans began to dig wells to harvest salt from salt springs, called salines. In the early 20th century the land was then strip-mined for coal. Kickapoo State Park was the first park in the United States to be located on strip-mined land. The state of Illinois purchased the Kickapoo State Park Area in 1939 with donation money from Danville residents and the land has since recovered from the extraction of these resources.

Founded in 1974, Kennekuk County Park is 3000 acres in size and is located five miles west of Danville. It is bordered on the west by the Middle Fork National Scenic River and the Middle Fork State Wildlife Area (3000 acres). Kickapoo State Park (3000 acres) is three miles to the south. Kennekuk County Park is an oak-hickory forest type with native tall grass prairie areas. It contains three Illinois Nature Preserves within its boundaries (Windfall Prairie, Horseshoe Bottoms and Fairchild Cemetery).
