Saturday was the 40th annual Forest Park Balloon Race. John and I spent most of the day over there watching them prep and photographing the race. The weather was good, just wish we had blue skies. It's a hare and hound race, so they release the energizer bunny first as the hare, then the rest of the balloons try to chase it down. They throw beanbags from above to see who comes the closest to the hare! Before the race, they had a show of skydivers.
