I had the pleasure of taking a ride in a Hot-Air Balloon and YES, it was an experience of a lifetime.
I learned so much on this short ride. One thing Iearned was that it was literally hot! I never thought that taking a ride in a Hot-Air Balloon would be physically hot but it really was! I guess that's why it's called a HOT-Air Balloon!
Aside from the Hot-Air Balloon being hot, I have to say it was beautiful! WOW! I saw incredible views while floating across the sky and I even picked a leaf off of the top of a tree. That's something I never thought I'd do.
Another thing I noticed was that it was so quite up there I could hear conversations taking place in local backyards. Just a common conversation was loud. It was really peaceful and calming as strange as that may sound! Sound travels a lot further than I thought.
If you've never taken a ride in a Hot-Air Balloon and you've always wanted to, now is your chance! Come and enjoy an awesome weekend of Hot-Air Balloon rides and family fun on June 7, 8, 9.
There will be live music, a petting zoo, corn hole, fire pits, hayrides, a haunted house, a bounce pad, a rope maze, a cow train and much more!
Best of all, Q92's Chris Marino, the Hot-Air Balloon Buffoon and Joe Daily & Michelle, the Hot-Air Balloon Tycoons - will be there live!
