This blog will be short but it is being done so that next year you can mark your calendars far ahead and plan to be in Puerto Peñasco for the 3rd Annual Balloon Festival. Despite the cold and windy weather, the afternoon and evening functions went very well. Only 3 balloons went up on Friday morning and on Saturday and Sunday the wind and Mother Natural did not cooperate as they could not fly. I spoke with one pilot who said they were as disappointed as we were and maybe even more. This is what they love to do and come here with family and friends to help them set and be in the chase vehicle. Hopefully next year will be better.
On the brighter side of things, the vendors who attended were very happy with the sales and results. Due to the weather being warmer on Friday, I would say more people came out. The event was very well organized and there was lots of parking, chairs and tables for people to enjoy food and beverage. One vendor had a vast array of miniature hot air balloons that were all brightly colored and looked like the real deal. They could be used to hang in or outside. There was plenty of food and drinks to be had as well as great music that everyone could enjoy. Please enjoy the video provided by Jose from the Boo Bar.
Spring is in the air so come out and join the fun while enjoying the beautiful weather in Puerto Peñasco and the stunning Sea of Cortez views. Remember Rocky Point is only a 4 hour drive from Phoenix or Tucson.
