Hot Air Balloon Festival in Anna

The Anna Glow Fest kicked off this morning with a hot air balloon floating past our backyard. An up-close reminder that the Memorial Day weekend is going to be one big party out here in my little town. If you live in the DFW area and plan to stay in town for the holiday weekend, check out the Glow Fest site for details on pricing and events. It starts this afternoon and goes through Monday. The coolest part of this kind of event is the evening glow--when all the balloons light up at twilight, glowing against the dark sky. Very cool.

Our good friend Stacy Driskell, president of the Anna Chamber of Commerce, has spearheaded this event. Come on out and help support her efforts as well. Should be lots of fun out here on the edge of the metroplex.
