This is fantastic I have to enter. Love you city and love air balloons

This is a well known event around the country and you're lucky to be a part of this event on an annual basis. We have two Balloon Races in two different areas in North Dallas. But I would have to say, they pale in comparison to yours.

Yesterday we had a balloon land on the side of the highway at 830am snarling morning traffic, pretty balloon, not so pretty being stuck in traffic..
