Kentucky Derby Balloon Race

There are Derby festivities every day for the two weeks leading up to The Kentucky Derby. One of my favorite events is the Great Balloon Race. The night before the race they bring out all the balloons and have The Balloon Glow.
 Families come out and mingle with the balloonists and right before dusk they inflate the balloons.
                        You can get up real close and even reach out and touch some of them.
                                            The heat up the balloons and wait for nightfall.
                         A half an hour later when it starts getting dark the have the balloon glow.

                                            And as you can see, it's not just for kids.....
