We were so excited to be invited down to this years Gulf Coast Hot Air Balloon Festival.. This is one thing that has always been on my bucket list and while the weather didn’t cooperate for us to go for a ride, they were still beautiful to look at all lit up at sunset. While the Balloons of course were the main attraction, the festival was packed with all the things you hope to find, great food, vendors, and of course live music.
We had a great time exploring downtown Owa in between our time at the festival, and we got to check out all of our favorite stand by’s as well as the new Valerio’s Pizza and Italian restaurant that served up some delicious pizza and salads.
You know the amusement park is a BirminghamMommy favorite and we loved being able to see the progress on the Water Park set to open at the end of June. We can’t wait to share more about that as they get close to opening.
The dates are already set for next years festival, so make plans for early May, this is the perfect weekend trip for the whole family to enjoy!
