Our weekend getaway in Oklahoma 2 years ago was spent mostly by watching the Balloon Festival in Tahlequah. As I wrote in my previous post, we stayed in a vacation house in Cookson. Friday evening we went to watch the balloon glow. I was surprised to see lots of people there. It was my first time to watch a balloon festival and those balloons were really huge and colorful. I took some photos when they had those balloons lighted up and twinkled. After the balloon glow, they had a fireworks show to wrap up the day’s event.
The next day, we went again to watch when they flew the balloons after we had our lunch. It took a while to wait. While waiting on the balloons to fly, there was a live concert but I didn’t really care about it because I don’t like those kind of music. It’s good that a group of Gospel singers sang next and we sat down and listened to their songs. The balloons flew later than what was scheduled because there was a shower in the afternoon. It’s good they decided to fly anyway but not a lot of them because of the rain.
