Hey Ya’ll! 🙂
FINALLY I have a chance to get on this blog thingy and make a short but very photographically filled post. Over the previous weekend I was able to get as close as I felt comfortable to the Great Falls Annual Balloon Festival that takes place here in Maine in the Lewiston/Auburn area. The place was packed with people of all ages waiting with anticipation for the hot air balloons to dot the late afternoon skies, including me.
Now, I for as long as I can remember the festival would take place every August. In my younger years I knew that when I saw those balloons in the air, the beginning of school was soon to follow. Being 29…ish and the festival being in its’s 23rd year, I now get to share the tradition of watching the hot air balloons with my own family. I think that I’m the only one who get excited for it though. Did I mention that I’m 29…ish? >_<
While we were there I was able to snap some fairly decent pictures of the balloons that were afloat, hear a live band and watch the masses go this way and that to there choice area of balloon watching. There is more than just hot air balloons in the sky though. On the other side of the bridge that I was on there was a small carnival full of rides, games and all the fried dough that your tiny little heart desires.
Anyways, enough lollygagging. Let’s get to the pictures! 😀
