GILES COUNTY - A unique hobby has taken a Giles County Commonwealth Attorney all the way to New York.

Bobby Lilly of Narrows has perfected balloon artistry for years.

You may have noticed him at local fairs and festivals making balloon animals for kids.

Now he's helping sculpt a five-story tall balloon masterpiece with some of the best "air" artists in the world.

Together “Airigami” is creating a giant Jack and the Beanstalk recreation that will be open to the public at the Rochester Museum tomorrow.

The five-story sculpture is made entirely out of balloons, but surprisingly has only taken days to put together.
