About a mile-and-a-half immediately north of us, is a privately-owned sports park that we had only driven by, but never been to. We changed that last night when we attended a Balloon Festival where more than a dozen hot air balloons were launched.
There were hundreds of people watching to paid $10 a car to get in the park where you could plant a lawn chair and watch.
We loved it and we learned a lot about a sport that excels at being visual. Check the bottom photo where behind the trees is a balloon that appears to be descending into the southside of Lansing.
Would we take our grandkids up in a balloon? Not til they're older, a lot older. Then we'll probably be too old.
