We're leery enough of flying as it, so we certainly have no interest in going up in a contraption that you can literally fall out of as it's hoisting you in the air against nature's will. But we'll happily watch others do it while stuffing our face with hot dogs and listening to live music. Which is why the Plano Balloon Festival is perfect for us. Not only do you get to see the pretty balloons and all the fun activities that go along with them—like balloon glows, mass launches, and even a fly-in competition, where pilots chuck bean bags from their balloons at a target on the ground—but you also get food, fireworks, and plenty of other festival fun.
