We have been visiting the Balloon Fiesta on occasion since it started and love the event. It was much smaller years ago but the colour variety and size of the balloons is incredible. Watching as each balloon is filled with air and the noise of the heaters keeping them afloat is amazing.
This year the sky provided some interesting effects from dark cloud cover to bright sunlight. It contrasted so well with the colours of the balloons as they rose.
It is a tense and exciting time waiting for the green smoke to announce that the conditions are perfect for the balloons to take off.
