After 28 years, the Telluride Balloon Festival brought success and fun to Colorado another year. This past weekend, hot air balloons and patrons invaded Telluride bringing fantastic balloons and great weather.

The Main Street Night GLO event had the street dazzling with illuminated hot air balloons which can only be described as a different kind of Macy’s Thanksgiving Parade. Rainbows, checked and smiley faced balloons were only a few kinds that lined the street in their glowing glory.

Have you ever been up high above the mountains in a hot air balloon? Check out the video below showcasing a glimpse of the weekend and  image yourself transported there, enjoying the ride.
