While we waited for the balloons to be inflated, the kids took turns petting a few dogs (in sweaters) that were there with a local news person.
Then it was out to the field to wait for the balloons...
Finally the balloons started to go up! Unfortunately, due to the weather, only a dozen or so were inflated, but it was still cool to see.
But the big excitement of the day for the kids was stomping on bubbles that another boy blew with his bubble gun.
Bubbles and balloons! I'd say the Balloon Fiesta was a hit.
