Nocturnal Airmen

My buddy Geoff informed me that in nearby Santa Paula was having their first annual balloon festival. After helping a friend move and registering a car, I felt like having a little fun. We got there, and immediately I go to the front with my somewhat-fake Media Pass I made on here and ask, "Where is your media check-in?". I get directed to the booth where I inform them of my credentials, and am given a media pass.

 

Now tonight was just their "glow" where they blow up the balloons around sunset and then illuminate them so people can ooh, ahh and take pictures. But because of the wind, it started late and thus... didn't get that glow around sunset. LARGE

 

Tomorrow morning, gates open at 5am. So, who else wants to meet me there around 5:30am?
