Despite the crazy way they routed people onto the grounds of the NASCAR track at
Kansas City, Kansas.... we had a good view of baloons rising in the air on our way into
the Midwest Balloon Festival.
This balloon was actually tethered... and was taking people up and down.
See that "11" sign??? Thank heavens I noticed it.
It was so odd being up so very close to these giant balloons.
But the festival had many other things... lots of different things to eat... lots of people selling things... and a kids zone, as well. We did not even walk around the whole grounds... my friend Valerie and I.
Pretty soon, a whole bunch of balloons began inflating.
We were both in awe of them!
Soon, we saw lots of different kinds of balloons.
And at dusk, the balloons began to "glow".
As we were walking out, we had Valerie's first-ever funnel cake... we had both had barbecue for our dinner... but we wanted a dessert. Valerie enjoyed it very much!
We also listened to three numbers by Southern Vixen, a female trio who were great!
Yes, they had a music stage here, too.
Now... telling on ourselves... we could not find Valerie's van, and I finally remember we were somewhere near the "11" sign. Thank heavens!
