27th Annual Great Falls Balloon Festival!! Lewiston/Auburn Maine!! Day 1..

I love that apart from being my absolute favorite festival, this years specialty balloon will be Smokey the Bear at the Great Falls Balloon Festival! So cute and so much fun!! Unfortunately for being opening day none of the balloons took flight, boo hoo but the excitement and crowd was amazing tonight! Here are some of the pics from This evening!


So close to taking off but it was too windy for the hot air balloon show to go on.

.. but the music on the Main stage in Lewiston was going strong, even at the auburn stage!!! Yee haw… Great Job guys!!

We didn’t stick around for the moon glow but we’ve seen it in years past…it’s very neat to be apart of….but it was abit to chilly for me and the kiddos…that wind!! We had a great time nonetheless!! The kiddos especially loved the Fried Dough!!! I had a taste, it was yummy!!


Fried dough… we used to call them elephant ears…

Smokey the Bear

Heres a look at the Smokey the bear informational stand, and bear figure! A Great resource to preventing forest fires.. cool kids stuff and even information for adults on how to protect their homes when you live close to woods! Hmm I didn’t even know I needed this.. thanks Ranger!!

If your in town or want to check out this free and fun event, support the Lewiston Auburn community, and enjoy Live music (super fun) come on out, hopefully we’ll see a hot air balloon or two, or hopefully more 😉

Im a mother, blogger and have come to enjoy the wonderful outdoors living in Maine for over 20 yrs!! Its been a whirlwind of change and never ending projects at our homes that helped me see the need to be physically active and work towards healthy eating, and a balanced mind!! My passion in life is inspiring others to make good changes, besides getting out and exercising what has helped me is the bible and its message of hope :) My Blog is all about the many projects in life we have, the good eats-food (vegetarian, and vegan included) that im cooking up in the kitchen, and the gorgeous nature inspiration: all of which helps me feel happy!! I love sharing with you!! follow along & be inspired!!
