Festival attracted over 60 balloons
from all over the country. It began with a "Moonshine" and included a "key grab"
event for a 1993 Chevy truck. Box winds, usually non-existent in this part of
Texas, made the Saturday morning competition particularly interesting. We show
a pilot evaluating various launch sites in the "key grab" event and another
launching quickly after the "hare balloon" mistakenly launched early. Multiple
balloons are seen hurriedly launching to compete in the evening's flight.
