Ooohh!! Thanks for the reminder, Stan!! I almost forgot about it. Think I will go with my camera + 70-200 VR lens.


BostonRott...yes, it's an annual event, weather permitting. This hot air balloon event is part of a week long festivities related to the Preakness horse race which happens this Saturday. Wish I could go watch the Preakness but it's very expensive to get in on that day. Any other day would have been fine, I think. I've been there once on a non-Preakness week.

Hope the weather is good Weds night for this hot air balloon thing!

That would be a bummer!! The hot air balloon event never seems to take off as planned just about every year.
