This year we opted to go in the afternoon so we could witness the Hot Air Balloon Nightglow and fireworks.
We arrived in time to witness the Pacific Drift Car Drifting Demo.
Witnessing the Mike Schem Stearman Aerobatic show
Mike Schem fly-by
Bill Wright Omni Aerobatic show
Radio-Controlled Model Aircraft Demo
Kian dreams of becoming a pilot one day. The festival featured several model planes that he wanted to take home to add to his collection.
Spent the afternoon just lying down on the field and watching the planes and kites in the air, and Julia's version of planking.
I was a bit disappointed though because I thought the Nightglow would feature the balloons taking flight.
(You have to excuse my video of the fireworks as I was holding my phone upside down.)
It was not that jaw-dropping as the last time we were there, but nevertheless, the time spent with the kids is simply priceless.
