Phoenix - Day Two (c)

I had to include one more event which made for a very busy and long 2nd day in Phoenix - The Glendale Glitter and Glow. Why does that sound like a Proud Parade? Not exactly. The town of Glendale is famous for its Hot Air Balloon crews so that Saturday night (Jan 7th) they invite three dozen balloon crews to bring their hot-air balloons into town and set them up in the streets. There is also the tree lights (that I showed in the first post), vendors, food trucks, bands and of course every antique store and restaurant in town there/open and keeping everybody happy. It was a bit chilly (no, down right cold for this Florida girl) but it was cool watching the balloons go up and then light up. A couple of them are not your typical balloons but that just made it special. I'm posting the photos that turned out half-way decent. It was harder after dark. I had to wait until their burners went off to get decent shots.

I had to borrow a couple of pics from my cousin's wife because any pics of Mark's crew putting the balloon up were too dark. I copied her spiderman pic too because mine just looked creepy (creepier). Cousin Mark is the one in the middle (1st pic) that is laughing. It was a good night.

Had to be so pretty. We have a balloon rally in Boise every year but I've never gone

It was very cool. Balloons on every street.

I don't see those in Florida either. I did see several up in the sky during the days before this event. It's apparently a big industry in Arizona and throughout the west.

Such a spectacular event it seems, which I have never heard or seen in my life yet.

Your cousin pic...That thing they are carrying must be a flattened balloon, right? Not a body bag...

Yes, that's the balloon. They are burping the last of the air out of it before putting it back in its storage bag.

We sometimes see balloons on summer evenings but they are very boring compared to the ones in your photos!
