We went out Saturday to Huff in Puff in Topeka Kansas. The hot air balloons were pretty. I was really disappointed. When I think of a festival for hot air balloons. I think more than 15. This was like a sneak peak of balloons. Seriously!!! Then they talked about a glow show. I thinking balloons in the sky illuminating the sky. Not the case at all!!!! It was all balloons on the ground. they would light up every so often. Needless to say we did not stick around. If you are driving from Fort Riley. Really don’t waste your time.
The one thing I have learned about Kansas they have they most amazing Marketing Teams. They can sure talk up a good game. The follow through is horrible though. We felt duped. They made it sound like there would be tons of balloons there. So when you arrive and only see maybe 20 at most you can’t but help feel let down. At least my best friend Tanya was there so we could laugh. We people watched and that was entertaining as always. We had our friends kids with us. As mom was out of town and dad had duty. They were intrigued.
Here are some of my favorite shots from the night
