In the summer of 2015, the Triangle area had its first annual Hot Air Balloon Festival.I found out about it when I saw all the complaints about traffic snafus on FaceBook; people sat on the highway for hours and missed the balloons!
I saw the balloons at night at The Glow and decided to make the trip to Rolesville to see them in action.
The first morning we got there at 7:00 am. There were only a couple of balloons on the field; on display so to speak. I was very disappointed; I’m not a morning person and this was quite an effort for me.
By the time I went to bed that night, I knew I’d be miserable if I didn’t give it one more try. I bound out of bed at 4:30am to get there by 6:00; it was worth the sacrifice and I was back in bed before the rest of the family was up!
