The balloons are really beautiful and there are hundreds of them. There are great gift stalls and very good food choices. One can also see local TV personalities and national bands playing. Bring a jacket for the earliest morning activities like the balloon glow.

Thanks for the review and feedback! It can get a little chilly first thing in the morning so bringing a jacket is a great idea! We appreciate your kind words and awesome review.
