Hillsborough Ballon Festival




Every year we try to make it to the Hillsborough Ballon Festival to see the balloons take off. Last year they didn't go up while we were there but this year we got to see them all take off.

The balloons are so bright and colorful and fun to take pictures of. I probably took about 50 pics but here are just a few for you to enjoy!

Ohh the memories... is the fair still there ? Or is it just a balloon festival? Looked like fun!

I miss the balloon festival. Oh so many memories....

I think I broke up with my first 'real' boyfriend at it one year.

I love going to Balloon Festivals!!! I didn't encounter my first until I moved to Colorado. In August of every year (Aug. 24 this year--Traci in Colorado...a must see!!!) Chatfield has a balloon festival which is just so fun. It doesn't look as large as the one in Hillsborough but the same idea. In Colorado Springs they have a HUGE one...which we went to the Night Glo Portion (they all light up at night but don't take off) but Chuck got stepped on his face...not fun.

My goal is one year to go to the Albuquerque, NM balloon festival which is the largest in the country!!! Probably only a 4-5 hour drive but I'm sure it will be worth it!

Miles father owns and flys a couple hotair balloons, so maybe the next time you and the family go to Michigan, we can arange for you all to go on a balloon ride. It really is an amazing thing, you really do feel like your flying.
