Balloona Palooza 2016 in Helotes Texas


Balloona Palooza lands at the festival grounds in Helotes for the weekend .  There was plenty of great food; inflatables for the kids to jump, climb and slide; music and of course the BALLOONS!

For just a few dollars you could take a tethered ride up in one of the balloons or just spread your blankets and chairs on the grass and wait for the evening show when the balloons were inflated and the light show to music danced on the surface of the balloons.

All this and a small carnival with rides to keep the kids entertained as well.  The gates opened at 4:00.  We were treated to a great sunset and an evening of music and balloons all aglow.   A great afternoon of fun for the whole family.
