Glowing floating balls of magic that draw you into their magic thrall. Its a thrall that lends to open awed mouths that are followed by wide eyes gazing towards the mystical sight.
This is my second time at the Balloon Fiesta and the sight of 100’s of lit up balloons still has the ability to transport me to a time when enchanted lands were real and my favorite past-time was pretending to live in them.
We had the pleasure of meeting the crew of the Sanford Children’s hospital balloon. Pilot Olivier let us hop in their balloon to make sure it stayed earth bound as they lit up the sky. It was a magical night and I hope these images transport you there.
