This is a beautiful event as the balloons soar over the fall foilaged mountains of the area. Many local churches and organizations are food vendors there as well as the usual Carnival fare. Lots of open tailgating and pretty good bbq'ing happenin' there, historically.

    Red, I'm gonna try and talk PP into going to this. We like hot air ballons and it looks like they have a ton of stuff for the kids. Thanks for posting it.

      Hey guess what, we went! 340 miles 6 hour round trip but we went. We had a good time and had some good food. I ate 3 corn dogs and an Itialian sausage sandwich with onions and peppers. Plus a couple bites of funnel cake. PP had 1 corn dog and the fullel cake. Our 3 yr old had some of all of this.

      Friday was free ride day for the kids. Ava got to ride several of the kiddie rides plus she got to feed the critters in the petting zoo and got a pony ride.

      We didn't see any hot air ballons though.

      We almost turned around and left as soon as we got there. They had a mix-up on the handicapped parking situation. We finally got someone to take care of that though and everything went smoothly after that.

      Thanks Redtressed for the info.

      Edit; Red't forgot to mention that Morgantown has Kroger grocery stores. We stopped at one on the way out of town and picked up 4 gallons of real buttermilk. That was worht the trip right there.
