Our sister station, Action News in Fresno, was sent several photos from viewer Heather Davidson of the red balloons Wednesday night.

The balloons were made famous by the terrifying Stephen King movie and book "It." It tells the story of an evil clown named Pennywise who terrorizes a town and uses red balloons to lure kids into storm drains.

Although this might just be a Halloween prank, the fear of the red balloons is still there for many who may have read the book or seen the movie.
