Hot air balloons are amazing. I’ve never ridden in one, but just watching them makes me feel like a little kid again. I get excited, mesmerized and I start dreaming about flying high above the city with the thunderous sound of the flame torch beside me. Power, beauty and grace all wrapped into one flying machine.

That’s why the RE/MAX of Midland Balloon Festival is one of my all-time favorite Midland events. It’s coming up fast so mark you calendars for September 12-15. More details can be found here.
