Last year, I tried to take my peanut, only 8 months old at the time to another Hot Air Balloon Festival but it was rained out. Luckily, the day after we were driving around and found some just getting ready to launch [photo below]. She was intrigued and excited!
I can't wait to take her this year, to go see some Hot Air Balloons - at almost 2 yrs. old, she's gonna dig 'em for sure!
The 7th Annual Celina Balloon Festival and Family Fun Day is a true “festival of flight”! With in-the-air activities including Hot Air Balloons, RC Airplane Show, Helicopter Rides, Rocketry Demos, Kite Expositions, a Sky Dive show and an appearance by Rocketman Dan Schlund, the sky will be filled with activities sun-up to sun-down. On the ground activities include carnival rides and games, giant inflatables, a petting zoo, children’s pavilion, an expo area with an RV, Car and Motorcycle show and a Beer Garden. The Main Stage features performances from Sonny Burgess, Emerald City and rising talent from all over Texas.

I just might have gotten my husband to agree to attend with the mention of "Beer Garden" - Heh, Heh!
