Fun Fiesta Folks

Fiesta folks (volunteers, guests, pilots and crews) are some of the friendliest people you can meet.  I spent as much time as I could trying to capture the best people pics.  Thanks to everyone who “posed” for me.  Here are my favorites – be sure to read the captions for the story behind each photo:

Riding through the RV Park, where’s the parade? Looks like this Shriner got lost!

Unusual balloon crew member – the one on the left not the hat guy 🙂

It took us forever, but we finally figured out that these ladies were probably too short to get in the basket once it was standing – at first we just thought they were really, really eager to take off!

On Thursday before our balloon ride, these rain dancers performed on the field. WHAT WERE THEY THINKING??? Just more work for the tireless weather goddess…

Visitors to my work during a Mass Ascension – I wasn’t doing anything, honest Officer!

We saw this gentleman everywhere – how could we not?

Barry, Pilot of the “In the Buff” balloon remembered Storm and me from 4 years ago. What a great person, we were delighted to see him again as he is one of the special people who inspired us to return as volunteers.

      Thanks for the kind comments. I think the fun may be ending as we hit the congested and unbelievably rough roads on the east side of the Mississippi. I already miss the wide, open spaces! But I sure look forward to seeing my East Coast Friends!!
