Ah, another Balloonfest has come and gone. Some go to Balloonfest for the bands. Some go for the water rides. Some even go to Balloonfest for the Balloons. Check out these CRAZY pictures to see why I like going to Balloonfest.

I go for another reason: to people-watch. It is the greatest freak show on Earth, ever since they quit having actual freak shows sometime back in the Sixties. Here are a few of my photo highlight of the Balloonfest that was…2014.
