We pulled into the Kirtland AFB FamCamp late Sunday afternoon and dry camped for one night. We were able to move into a full hook-up site the next morning.
On Tuesday, we went to the Recreation Center to purchase tickets to the festival and we also purchased tickets to ride on the van to the festival. We had to get up really early on Wednesday to catch the van but it was well worth it. The festival has two sessions, one in the early morning hours to around 11:30, and the evening glow session.
The early morning Dawn Patrol was beautiful.
After the sun came up the other balloons began to inflate. I loved all the balloons but the special shaped balloons were amazing.
There were around 550 balloons, I read, that were here this year. On Friday we went back and the balloons just hung in the air around the field. There was not much wind that day. The skies were beautiful filled with colorful balloons.
The evening glows were beautiful as well.
And who can forget Steve, the pin guy.
