Hot Air Balloons

2010 Battle Creek Field of Flight Air Show and Balloon Festival Michigan

On vacation over the 4th of July weekend, I was able to stop and see one of my favorite events - the Field of Flight Air Show and Balloon Festival in Battle Creek, MichiganWe saw Friday's evening balloon launch and the twilight twinkle.  This photo is from the twilight twinkle, where some of the balloons line up and just light up at night for a visual display. 

This is my 7th entry to Scenic Sunday #104 (I was entry 6 of 64). 
This is my 2nd entry to SkyWatch Friday (I was entry 290 of 319).

Oh, those balloons are something special. I recently went to a balloon festival out here in so. California. Our evening "glow" is called "balloon glow." How cute that yours is called "twilight twinkle." I LOVE it! I got some pretty cool photos on my blog from ours too!

How alluring a sight. Must be great to escape into the night within one of them. Please have a nice Sunday.
