If you know me, you'll be shocked to find out that I had to get up at 6 am today and go stand in a field of wet grass, while freezing, to watch the balloons take flight. I know you feel my pain. Was it worth it? Yes!!! Watching the mass ascension was magical, truly a unique experience. I am very happy that I made it to Balloon Fiesta this year. I hope you'll enjoy the pictures as much as I enjoyed being there!
Unfortunately my first event at Balloon Fiesta - tonight's Special Shape Glowdeo - was canceled because of the wind. I did get to see the fireworks tonight though and I am hoping for better luck tomorrow.
A festival of milling, spinning, weaving, baking in the hornos, tortilla making, roasting green chile, stringing chile ristras, pressing apples for cider, stomping grapes for wine by foot, sorghum grinding & molasses making, corn grinding, tamale making, tin stamping, traditional dancing, book signings, reenactments, and more.
