Balloon Fest

Howell, MI Balloonfest
We headed over to Howell, MI last night for the Michigan Challenge Balloon Festival. This is our second time attending and the weather was much better last night than at our previous visit.

I don't think watching ballons take off and examining their interesting color combinations and designs will ever get old! Hopefully I will overcome my fear of heights one day and take a ride without getting queasy!

See the rest of the balloon photos here.

  1. Beautiful!!! I've wanted to go to a balloon festival for years, and we tried to a few years ago and when we got there all the balloons were out flying around and wouldn't be back for hours. So we never got to see a single one :( One year this will happen! Love all the colors and patterns, so cool!

  2. I'm not a heights person either, but I think I might try for a balloon ride. I went on a tethered ride once when I was a kid, but a ride in Temecula is on my to-do list.

  3. That second-to-last photo just screams Quilty Inspiration, doesn't it? Hot air balloon ride is soooo on my bucket list. :)

  7. This makes me smile. I actually grew up in Howell and this is the first time I've ever heard of anyone attending the Balloon Fest.
