On my way from Oregon to Colorado this fall, I just happened to be in Reno on the weekend of their Balloon Festival. I arrived at the Balloon Park around 4:30 am to check out the festivities. Just after sunrise magic happened. The sky was filled with 100 of the most colorful balloons that I have ever seen.
There were about a dozen specialty balloons. People were able to walk around and watch them inflate these gigantic devices. There were many shapes and one balloon took up a couple and a minister and were married while floating above the park.
