Ah, so this post is coming in a little late since the Plano Balloon Festival was a couple weekends ago. I’m trying to figure out a more consistent posting schedule around my new job (!!!), but until then, better late than never, right?
This was my second hot air balloon festival, with the first one being in St. Louis last year! Though I grew up in DFW, I’ve never attended the Plano Balloon Festival. Now that I’m back in town, I have quite a bit of rediscovering Dallas to do.
So the biggest difference from the St. Louis one was visitors could not walk among the balloons. Boo… Instead, we staked out a spot behind the roped-off balloons to watch the upcoming show:
“Light ’em up up up, light ’em up up up:”
After the balloon glow was over, there was still plenty to do – mainly explore booths selling junk food, knickknacks, and giving out free samples galore!
Christina and I collected a fair share of free products. Advil and vitamins, ftw 😉
I was surprised by how our little suburb made the most of this festival! Fun music, free samples, and a hot air balloon display – what more could you want?
Have you been to a hot air balloon festival? Where was it? Seeing the hot air balloons rise over Cappadocia, Turkey is on my bucketlist!
Thanks for reading!
