I’m not bound to the ground but in the sky I’m Free ! My spinning Top will never stop, so long as I stay a Kid again ! My neighbors here and there and everywhere, oh what Fun it is to be a Kid again! This annual Balloon Fiesta Called The Greatest Show off Earth Number 40. I Think I’ll sit on the Hill again, with my Breakfast Burrito and fly in my mind, dream how to catch a ride in the sky, To a place called To be a Kid Again, October 1 through the 9 th this year, So warm up the Smile and look to the Sky. If I’m to dream, make it big dreams, If I’m lucky enough to catch a ride, I can Be that Kid again !

  • Hi ! Linda, This adventure sport seems to be growing all the time, I’ve been around long enough to have noticed, it’s one of those large families that enjoys smiling and sharing and caring, touching the sky and talking to the angels ! that’s where it comes from to be a kid again ! normally I’m not a big crowd person, but it didn’t take long to realize, all these people get up between 4 and 5 am and seem to smile all day, for 8 of the nine days, the ninth of course the ending and expression, I plan to do it again next year, it’s an adventure just being part of it. ♥ thanks paul
