Light up the night! Glowing the balloons! 605 views! by 

Greenfield, Massachusetts. USA

This fair came into being to increase tourism into Franklin County in the middle of the summer. Featured music artists, craft artisans, puppeteers, and of course the food vendors comprised the festival this year.
The attendees were not shy about getting in on the action!
I spotted Jugglers, acrobats, girls swaying with hulu hoops, even spontaneous music came out.
The morning showers cleared in time for a morning launch, but very overcast skies. The day was bright and sunny, then the clouds started coming back in for the evening launch.
After the flight the evening finished off with a balloon “glow” they count down and light up the night!
Everyone cheers, and no one wants the magic to end.
Wonderful New England Day!

    great shot!…jealous I am..wish I coulda made it there!

  • Ron, there were definately some sights to see! But the weather did not co-operate too well, rained out Friday night. Rain delayed Sat. morn, and wind delayed Sat. night. The glow was awesome! Not sure what’s coming up in your area, but hopefully you’ll get to go to one soon! Have a good one, and take care, Linda
