Our friends down in Natchez, Mississippi are enjoying Balloon Festival this weekend. It’s a big deal every year! The whole town shows up. Every hotel, B and B and guest room at friends is booked for months in advance. There is great food, really cool, fun music, people of all ages from everywhere, and a spectacular site when those hot air balloons take off over the Big Muddy!
Friday night’s main event is called Balloon Glow.
The Balloon Glow is an exciting and colorful event where many of the pilots inflate their balloons at sunset, keeping them tethered to the ground, and use a special burner that creates a bright, warm light within the envelope, giving the balloons a light bulb like appearance.
Wish we could have stayed for this event! Maybe next year….

The best kind of glow!
now that is a different kind of glow! bet you are the only one who has this!!
The contrast between the balloon and the background is so striking the balloon seems to vibrate as well as glow. Very cool.
Thanks. It really is quite a sight to see them all fire up!!!
