Major Balloon Fest in NoCo This Weekend
You may have already seen this! The first launches were at 6:15 this morning from downtown Erie. It'll happen again same time tomorrow (Saturday,) and Sunday!
(Sorry I'm not at all excited about this.)
At 7:30pm these three nights, there'll be (weather permitting, I'm sure) the Hot Air Balloon Night Glow at Coal Creek Park.
The hot air balloons are only a part of the "22nd annual Erie Town Fair & Balloon Festival." Here's the whole package:
- The Garage Rats Car Show from 9a-3p.
- Kids' stuff like inflatables, face painting, pedal cars, and Tumble Bubbles (which are those giant, clear balls kids get inside and float around on. My girls love them.)
- Beer garden.
- Fireworks planned for 9:15p. (I'm assuming the balloons will all be down by then;)
- Live music from Denver band Chase N the Dream.
Taking a balloon ride is on my list of to-do's. Better yet might be to own one - seriously!
