How To Make Your Unplanned Weekend Out Of Town Trip Enjoyable

Hello November!  It is nice to feel cool temperatures again. But I am not ready for winter yet.  🙂 How’s your Halloween?  It didn’t rain here in our town so we got to do the Trick or Treat.

Anyway, my DD and I got to go out of town this weekend.  We went to a Glow Fest Hot Air Balloon Festival in Anna.  Anna is a small town located North of Dallas.  It was not a planned trip actually. We just went ahead and drove to Anna this afternoon.  The balloon festival has entertainment for kids so I decided to.  It’s been a while since we have gone to a balloon glow festival.  There was a live band performance, shops, food, obstacle course, bounce houses, and wall climbing.  I was just a little disappointed because there were only two hot air balloons.  It would have been more enjoyable if there were more than two.

The festival was held in the parking lot of Anna High School.  It was a big area to hold bounce houses, shops, food trucks, and other entertainment stuff.  The parking area was at the Slater Creek Park.  Gladly there’s a shuttle bus that is transporting people to and from the glow fest.

Before DD and I left for the glow fest, I knew that the temperature is dropping.  We brought and worn our jackets throughout the festival.  It was very chilly.  I highly recommend bringing jackets or coats wherever you go this time of year because you’ll never know how cold it will get.
