Balloonfest 2013 was definitely a handful of fun, music, food and everything else. 

Balloonfest took place Memorial Day weekend (May 25, 26, 27) at Wet 'N Wild Waterworld in Anthony, NM. The balloons were party animals and were launched every morning from 6400 Mason Farms Road. Afterwards, people headed over to Wet 'N Wild for more family fun.

But before all the fun begun Saturday, Dubba G had a little shopping to do ....

Sunday, Texas Roadkill began the day and the fun continued as they lead on to Aranda! Aranda literally got off the plane, rushed over to Wet 'N Wild put their bags down and went on stage. Talk about no time for warm up. But you wouldn't even tell because as always they had the crowd singing along and tearing it up. Sully Erna of Godsmack finished the day with a bang performing his solo acoustic.
