It was exciting to see that there was an event with hot air balloons in Amarillo. We are going to miss this year’s Balloon Fiesta, so we checked out the Up in the Air for Family Care event.
The event was held at the Starlight Ranch, part of the Big Texan empire.
In a rare appearance, Bob agreed to pose for a photo.
And of course, there must be tacos on site.
Hot Air Balloons
Well, this is Amarillo…and it was windy. About 18-20 mph, unfortunately. Which means that the hot air balloons couldn’t put up the balloon envelopes and do a balloon glow. Two of the balloon teams put their balloon baskets in the food court area, which gave us a chance to see some candlesticking.
I wish the hot air balloons had been able to glow, but it was still nice being out and about.
