On Saturday, I spent the evening with April and her dad in Angola, IN, taking in the awesomeness that was the 3rd Annual Angola Balloons Aloft. It’s essentially a festival devoted to hot air balloons.
I’ve wanted to attend the festival since it started but always had something else going on. This year, however, I wasn’t letting anything keep me from going. Not even the 100 degree temperatures that have scorched the area the last several days. By the time we got to the airport where the festival was held, the temps were a bit cooler and a nice breeze made it bearable.
We only caught the last two hours of the event, but it was more than enough time to enjoy some of the usual festival foods and take in the balloon glow that concluded the evening festivities. And, of course, pictures were taken. Enjoy!
