How cool...I've always wanted to go to one of those festivals. I have gone up in a balloon (and LOVED it), but never to a festival.

Great job as always...

Ballooning looks like a lot of fun but a lot of work too! I love seeing them in the valley from time to time. The festival must have been spectacular. :)
