I’m always game for great photo ops! At heart, I’m a wannabe photographer. So when I heard about the Great Forest Park Balloon Race, I knew I had to go!! A field of hot air balloons, literally across the street? Oh yes, this was an event for me.
Even better, on Friday night there was the balloon glow!
Saturday was the day of the actual race. We showed up early as the event had a photography contest and were going to let amateur photographers in to get photos. Unfortunately, the weather didn’t cooperate and they cancelled the photo event. Boo. So we found a patch of grass to sit on and chilled in the sun until the actual race.
First balloon was off!!
Followed by the chaser balloons!
Problem with a hot air balloon race? I have no idea who won! The wind carried the balloons out of sight fairly quickly.
