This year I attended the 5th Annual Color The Skies event in Ripon. Color the Skies is a hot air balloon festival that raises money for Children’s Hospital of Central California. It's held on Labor Day every year. Last year I actually worked at the festival. [Best Buy is one of the sponsors] It was the first time that I had the opportunity to go. Every other year, I was either busy or away at school. Since I didn’t have to work this year, my dad and I decided to go.
All of the day’s festivities started at 6am with a pancake breakfast sponsored by Savemart. I am a big fan of a yummo pancake breakfast. However, due to the lack of taste in this food and the price, my dad and I decided to pass. That morning my dad and I set forth on our early morning trek towards Mistlin Sports Park. We stopped a few of the booths, including the Best Buy booth with a bunch of my coworkers. After that we headed over to watch the balloons lift off. It was a wonderful time to take out my camera and experiment with the different settings.
