We’ve heard about this Balloon Festival for quite some time, and we finally made it down last night. Des Moines is full of really cool events, but this one was at the top of the list. A few thousand people turned out for the “light the night” portion of the week long event. After sundown, the balloons all gather and light things up for the crowds of people. I have a lot of pictures to process, but got one finished last night to share. Stay tuned for some video as well – and try to make it if you’re in the area!
