Fiesta Favorites and Funnies

The 50th Anniversary of Balloon Fiesta has ended.  This year’s celebration will go down in the records as a very soggy event.  Also I believe it was the first Fiesta during which the weather never allows an Evening Glow inflation.

In spite of these setbacks, I still enjoy many memorable moments.  Where possible, I capture them in photos.  Hope you enjoy the highlights below.

Chase Vehicles

Now THIS is a chase vehicle!
Is this rainbow a sign? Well the rain holds off, but winds blow away any chance of a Glow this evening.
This one speaks for itself.
This one says "Go Around!!! If it was supposed to be fast, it wouldn't be shaped like a brick."

Framed Balloons
This balloon has just been inflated when a violent thunderstorm develops over the field and the glow is doused.

It took some research, but I finally figured out that the song on this balloon is the Beatles' "Yesterday"
If only this sunshine could have conquered the rain.
Ominous night sky precedes an emergency evacuation of the field.
A bouquet of balloons for you!
What's that huge lump in the uninflated balloon on the ground?
