On Friday, August 8th my employer treated those of us who wanted to go, to the Balloon Fest. It was a perfect event to document our culture in action. I enjoyed documenting the parents with their children who were in amazed awe, excited with energy (probably from the sugar), and just happy to be where they are. The adults also had the chance to be a kid, re-visiting their childhood taste of cotton candy, corn dogs and a plethora of treats from the past.
Grandma with her granddaughters. They were so excited to go ride a ride, but needed to have someone hold their balloons. They went in search for grandpa. As they came running back empty handed, grandma, and finally grandpa trailed behind. He appeared, with the two balloons in search of his three women.
The rest of the fun.
