Hello dear readers. I hope you all had a wonderful weekend! My weekend was fantastic. Ben and I attended Kansas City’s Great Midwest Balloon Festival in Olathe. We didn’t really know what to expect but we ended up having a really great time!
Before the balloons were set up we enjoyed some food and beer from some of the food trucks. Then we grabbed our camping chairs and set up a spot to watch the hot air balloons inflate and fly off.
Then they set up more balloons, including the novelty shape balloons, which stayed on the ground.
Once all the balloons were set up they let the crowd go in the field and walk around and check out the balloons up close.
The best part of the night was when they did the balloon glow. On the count of 10 all the balloon pilots turned on their flames at the same time so all the balloons literally glowed. It was gorgeous.
This was the first time I attended the annual festival and I am sure it won’t be the last!
Have any of you ever attended a hot air balloon festival before?
