I've always wanted to do this. I was driving thru New Mexico, a couple years ago while driving across country, and they had their annual balloon festival. Sadly, it was too windy. Another day.... It's certainly on my bucket list!!!
I'm desperate to try this! The festival goes on for a few days but there are a few days when they launch 100 balloons simultaneously. This is one of the few things in life that would get me up at 5 a.m., which is when the balloons launch.
