Oh Look, Hot Air Balloon Launch

Tonight I was at Tuthill Park with my son so he could play on the new playground that’s nice but wasn’t really necessary.

While we were there a pickup truck with a trailer pulled onto what will be the ice skating rink this winter and started to unload a hot air balloon.

I’ve seen them launch from Tuthill Park before, but never start to finish. It was fairly impressive. I’m not positive but from the time I noticed the balloon being pulled out to the time it lifted off couldn’t have been more than 20 minutes.

Of course my 4-year-old wanted a ride in the worst way. Maybe some other time, buddy. I did notice a woman who was waiting in the shade when we arrived to play at the park ran over an jumped in when it was ready. Looks like she had fun!
