On Saturday, we went to Ft. Madison to see the BALLOONS OVER THE MISSISSIPPI. This is a yearly event, and last year I tried to see it, but it was too cold and windy and they couldn't launch the balloons. It was an amazing site to see. There were about 12 hot air balloons that participated and they had a contest to see which one landed closest to a target on the ground. The only way they can guide them is by going up and down. It was amazing to see how close most of them came to the target.
