National Hot Air Balloon Day! Spectacular Hot Air Balloon Fest Taking Place This Month In Texas!
Many of us have a bucket list of things we would like to do at some point. For some it may be bungee jumping, for others it may be traveling the world, and for a baseball or football fanatic, it may be something as awesome as visiting the stadium of every single MLB or NFL stadium in the country! In my 20's I crossed an item off my bucket list when I jumped out of an airplane. Not everyone has skydiving on their bucket list but to each his own, right?
Well, one thing on my bucket list that I have never had the pleasure of experiencing is going up in a hot air balloon! I've never even been to a hot air balloon festival but that may change this year. Apparently, this June a hot air balloon festival and National Championship is coming to Texas!
