fooled you - bet you thought I was finally out of balloon pics..... :-)))
we are nearing the end, my favorite ones going up now, and posting more frequently now that photo show is over - yay!!


my favorite shots are the ones with the sky filled with balloons - in person it's an incredible experience!!




The 37th annual Great Balloon Race (http://www.greatforestparkballoonrace.com ) is was held on Sat September 15, 2007. To learn more about it look at the earlier photos.



Rememeber - this annual race at Forest Park is the ONLY balloon launch/race that starts inside a major metropolitan city. It requires special certification, and the international airport reschedules flights and tracks the balloons on radar as they move thru St Louis!!



Have a great Week!!!!

Ya know the popcorn and trucks are neat and fun to see but they just don't have the regal look of the classic hot air balloon.

I agree - a great novelty, worth a shot or two, but not approaching the classic look (except the Energizer Bunny - not only is it an incredible and the world's largest balloon, St Louis is the intergalactic headquarters for Energizer)
