Yesterday was the first day of fall and the Plano Balloon Festival was the perfect activity to welcome in the season.
Plano has been our home for the past 8 years and the Plano Balloon Festival is one of the more famous events in this city which visitors to the Dallas Metroplex should come and witness. This year mark’s its 38th year. How amazing is that!!! The festival activities vary each year but it is always guaranteed to be fun for the whole family. This 3-day festival is held at Oak Point Park.
Have you been to the Plano Balloon Festival? If not, go and see it for yourself tonight for the Balloon Glow and Spectacular Fireworks!!! Check out the schedule here.
We had a blast and here are some of the photos and videos we took from last night.
Hope you get to visit the festival this year.
NEVER HEARD ABOUT THIS KIND OF FESTIVAL. iT SEEMS REALLY FUN.
This looks like an incredible event to go and visit and be part of. I’ve always wanted to do a hot air balloon ride, but to be able to do it an event like this would be even more incredible.
I’ve never heard of it before. It looks amazing!! would love to see it, all the balloons and the fire lights, it looks so beautiful! Is it also possible to do a balloon ride?
Wow that looks amazing!!! I’d love to attend! Were you able to take the whole family up in the balloons? I’ve never been in an air balloon but it’s on the list 🙂
I was actually looking for people hovering up high on one of the hot air balloons but the third photo shows they’re all tethered to the ground. Guess they weren’t actually for that purpose. but being on this event looks just as fun and the photo ops is just amazing.
Wow! I’ve never heard of this festival. It looks like fun. Will add it onto my travel list.
I’ve always wanted to go to a balloon festival! I love seeing all the different kinds of balloons! Did you get to go up in a balloon?
BonBon … Great post and love the photos. Never been ballooning, but this is making me think I need to get myself to the next balloon festival near us.
I would love to see that for myself! Looks like an amazing festival and fun experience. Hot air balloons are beautiful
Very cute post <3
In my nearly 8 years in North Texas, I’m sad to say I never made it to the Plano Balloon Festival. It was always one of those things that conflicted with something else. I hope I get the opportunity to go someday.
