The Ballons have landed in our neighborhood

Sunday, August 03, 2014

We have an annual Spedie Fest and Balloon Rally in our area the first weekend of August. People come from all over the states to take part. Spedie's are a local favorite in our area and are different types of marinated meat that most people eat as a sandwich. During the weekend the balloons take flight at 6 AM and 6 PM depending on the weather. This morning I was lucky enough to have them fly right into our neighborhood and land. Here are some pictures from my driveway and then just down a block. People came out of the woodwork to see the beautiful site.

I was so glad this guy turned to face me!

And then landed a few houses away.

and then I turned around and a rainbow one was coming down

I hope your Sunday is as beautiful

    Other than the weather, nothing that spectacular happened here.
What happens to the balloons after they land?

    emoticon They are beautiful. We did have a balloon rally in the park across the street from us a few yrs. ago over a weekend. The kids went right up to them as they were filling them. What a sight!! i don 't recall the number that took flight but I would guess about 10. Thanks for the beautiful pictures.

    Here in Michigan in Howell which is the next town over from me, we have a balloon festival each year a week long just to celebrate all the wonderful balloons that are in the area. I have never been up in one but I sure would like to give it a try sometime. The cost is like 150.00 a person and I would never go alone so there is 300.00 for a 30 minute ride a little expensive for my taste but it looks like so much fun. Maybe one day I will splurge and just take the flight.

    Lucky you to have them so close! Don just took my brother to the Spiedie Fest this afternoon. I miss seeing them this year, but look forward to next year already!

    Wow. Balloons landing that close. There is a hot air balloon event that is the last weekend of July in a town a half an hour away from me to the north but none come this close to me.
