My mom, Ava, and I went to the Midwest Balloon Festival. It was a fun time. Ava had a blast on all the carnival rides and was excited to see the characters. Especially the "robot" (Star Wars Stormtrooper). We even got to do a tethered balloon ride. We also listened to some bands play, ate some yummy funnel cake, and then watch the balloons get inflated. The best part was after all the balloons were inflated we got to go on the field and walk around! As it hit night time the balloons would blast their fire and "glow." Really cool.
