A few weeks ago we visited Decatur for the Alabama Jubilee.
This is a hot air balloon event and is held annually each Memorial Day weekend. We enjoyed the trip.
It is amazing to see these huge colorful balloons. This was our third visit to the Jubilee.
On earlier visits the balloons didn’t fly on Saturday because of the wind. However, this afternoon some of the balloons were able to lift off for a short flight.
Others remained tethered and gave “rides” to the visitors.
In the evening we watched as they fired up the balloons. For obvious reasons they call this glowing.
Then Sunday the balloons flew over the park from across the river.
