Waterford Hot Air Balloon Festival

Earlier this week we heard about the Waterford Hot Air Balloon Festival. We have never been [or heard of it], so we thought it would be fun to go see what it was all about. 

On the drive there, we spotted 5 balloons in the air so we pulled over to take some pictures.

The festival is held on the grounds of the local elementary school. We got there at a great time last night - they were just starting to inflate some of the balloons in preparation for the evening glow event. 

Oh hey, look. You can buy balloon stuff at the festival!

As it got darker, each balloon would light up randomly. Eventually the announcer started a countdown and [almost] all the balloons would light up at the same time. It was quite a site with 13 balloons! I'm sure we will be back next year.
