(CANCELLED)Balloons in September!

**please see the reason for the cancellation at the bottom of this blog.

I am marking my calendar right now for September 24-26, 2010!  The 2010 Bluegrass Balloon Festival will be in Louisville, Kentucky that weekend.  Seeing as how Louisville is less than an hour from our home in Elizabethtown, it totally makes it a wonderful experience I surely want our entire family to be a part of.  I can see the kids now in AWE of the beautiful colorful balloons filling the sky!

I have never seen anything like this before in person and I have always wanted to do so!   We plan to keep our feet on the ground for this great event, but it appears that there are opportunities to go up in the balloons too!

Check out the event website for more details, but the general admission is $10 per car.  The great pictures we’ll get, as well as the fun we’ll have makes this a bargain in my mind for our family of five!

THIS IS WHAT THEY POSTED ON THE FACEBOOK PAGE FOR THE BALLOON FESTIVAL –

8-27-10 The Spirit of Kentucky Foundation has cancelled the Bluegrass Balloon Festival originally scheduled for September 24-26, 2010. A near rainout event in 2009, scarcity of corporate underwriting and other challenges required the cancellation. We are planning to return on the same weekend in the fall of 2011. All p…ilot and corporate underwriting fees for the 2010 event are being returned in full. Thanks to those sponsors and pilots who have already committed to the 2011 festival!
