The 22nd Annual Lake Travis Hot Air Balloon Flight will take place Saturday, August 11th, 2012. This year approximately a dozen hot air balloons will take off from the Mansfield Dam area and, if the winds are blowing in the usual direction, fly over Lake Travis. They usually take off around sunrise, which is scheduled for 6:56am on Saturday. For more information, visit the Central Texas Ballooning website.
I am happy to announce this year I have arranged for the RE/MAX Hot Air Balloon to be one of the balloons making the flight. If you haven’t been out before, it is a relatively low-key event. Just come out, find a parking spot, then walk around and watch as the balloonists set up, inflate, and fly the balloons. You can get up close and personal with a lot of the folks and talk to them about ballooning. Of course, the photo opportunities are spectacular. So wake the kids up early and come out for a fun morning. I’ll be flying in the RE/MAX balloon, so stop by to say hello.
