In the evenings, there is “The Glow”.  The balloons line up very close to each other.  Then they inflate and just hang out.  They have a DJ and play music and the pilots flash the flames.  Sometimes to keep the balloons inflated, sometimes in time with the music.  And they let everybody wander around the balloons, chat with the pilots and crews.

They bump into each other as the wind pushes them around.  They also bump into the palm trees that are on the golf course where the festival is held.  I kept waiting for one to pop, but they must be tougher than they look.

This pic is for my great-niece, Baylee.  I don’t know how, but she got the nickname “Bug”.

They also have live entertainment.  Not so great, but they played a song that gave me a Badlees flashback.  That “Take A Load Off . . . ” song.  I don’t know what the title is or who sang it, I just know the Badlees do it soooo much better!  Of course, they always go off on a musical tangent during this song; it usually takes 10 + minutes for them to finish it.
