Balloon Festival

This weekend is the annual Great Falls Balloon Festival in Lewiston/ Auburn, Maine. It's a great time to enjoy balloons, food and music. It's so much fun and a great time to get out and enjoy the scenery and have fun connecting with people in the area. Everyone comes out for this festival and the streets are packed in the two cities for the whole weekend. Another Festival in Maine!

Oh Tracey, I just saw your comment on French Charming... I was so LOL! About having all those creative supplies yet not doing anything with them. Sounds so like me a lot of times... Yes, it IS the heat! When it cools down, we'll feel rejuvinated!!
