We had to get up at 3:30 to heat the coffee and hot chocolate and drive over to the park for the festivities. Feeling very strange to be up in the middle of the night with so many people. I actually saw people ordering corndogs at 4AM.
They start the show with Morning Glow: 5 balloons stay on the ground to light up. Then Dawn Patrol: 5 different balloons, do the same thing in the sky. Finally, after an hour wait, Mass Assention: over 100 balloons, just at day break, all fill and fly at various times. They let people run all over the field while they do this, so of course, I went crazy with the camera. Never having seen it before, I loved it. They play funny games of dropping bean bags from the balloons and trying to hit marks, which was not as entertaining to me. We were home cooking breakfast at 9AM.
Ten minutes after everyone left, Amy called and said they were coming to spend the night. They had business to take care of in
