Almost every year since 1980, our city has held the Great Texas Balloon Race.
Normally, its just a weekend of high flying balloon fun and different games/races for the balloon pilots to compete in during the morning and fun and excitement for the public in the evenings. This year, next year, and 2014, the National balloon race is also being hosted here so that means a full week of flying instead of just the normal 3 days.
I was off one day during the race, so I woke Kyndall up super early that day, and we became balloon hunters! We drove over 20 miles, made 3 stops, and saw lots of balloons. She was super excited.
Just after dusk, all the balloons get blown up and glow. Pictures don't do it justice.
