Balloon Festival-day one
We came to Decatur, AL to visit Anneke’s aunt and extended family. Serendipity had it that this was also the 34th Alabama Jubilee Hot Air Balloon Classic. Ok, we knew about the air balloon event, but did not realize how involved Anneke’s cousin’s husband was in this event. As we used to say- he was a big cheese. So in addition to seeing family, we also were treated as VIP’s for this event.
This was our first close-up look at a hot air balloon event. We had a great time watching the balloons; entertainment, food and being treated like VIP’s.
The first day, the evening balloon launch was cancelled due to “strong” winds, but the balloon glow event was a lot of fun.
