Balloon festival, Plano, TX


Last weekend we joined Stacy, Dallas and her mother at the Plano Balloon Festival.  It was hot when we got there, then it started to pour rain.  The event was put on hold for an hour,then re-opened when the rain quit.  So we had a pleasant, but very humid, time.  We strolled the various vendor areas, and got to see the balloon glow up close and personal.

Maybe not as big as Albuquerque, but interesting and fun.

The passing rainstorm left behind a beautiful sunset

And this is how the hot air is produced...

Too bad they didn't all light up at the same time
