Hot Air Balloon Fiesta

When I was boiling hot water, I was thinking how
hot air balloons rise. When the water started to boil,
air was heated and started to go higher in the air.

This year, we are planning to go to the balloon festival in our state.
My husband’s brother wanted to see the process of
igniting the balloons in the field.

The balloons have a burner in the bottom and mixes propane gas
and oxygen to ignite. This is a kind of little engine of the balloons.

Balloons fly about 1,000 feet(3,048m)in altitude.

We have to go really early in the morning to the
balloon field. Because, hot air balloons fly
when the air is cool and calm.

So, to watch the balloons, we got up early and took
5:30 am bus to the fiesta field.

This year, almost 580 balloons are participating
from 16 different countries.

A giant Van Gogh’s head from Netherlands was a
interesting balloon as a shape balloon.

Bit, I liked the Wells Fargo Bank’s stage coach balloon.
It said “US Mail”. It means the stage coaches carried the US mail
in the old days. It tells the history of the mailing system in the US.

Being outdoor, nice weather, my husband’s brother and his wife’s
visit from out of the state: the balloon festival brought togetherness
of the family, too.
