Grove City's Balloon festival - Friday night

Let's meet and photograph hot air balloons! Of course, this is weather dependent, so I will be updating this as it gets closer...

I'm not sure where we will try to meet up, so be sure to save my number and text me when you arrive. I can also try and post a comment about where to meet once I arrive, if you have access to the Meetup app on your smartphone. My number is 420-0000. 614 area code. Once we scope the place out Friday night, I can update the Saturday night meetup with a meetup location...

    Great except for the wind canceling the glow at the end of the night.

    Bummer that it became too windy. I managed a few shots of the balloons.

    Good food! They didn't get to many balloons up for some reason. They did not have the "after glow" either. We did get some FIRE shoots and weather was great. Will try to go tomorrow night. Hopefully they will have more balloons go up.

    What we did at Marysville last year was attach white ribbons to our camera straps so members could recognize each other.

      Well looks like I will be late to the party. Work, kiddo, and dinner things. So if I make it will be independent of the group. Sooner or later I will make it out again.

    Do we all wear red hats? and carry cameras? I will be there Friday or Saturday depending on rain also... but can not be there for afterglow past Delaney's bed time. Do we have a logo - badge or patch we can put on our camera bags : )

      Bob posted a map showing where they met up last year. Use that as a reference and feel free to text or call me also.

    did the date get changed to Friday instead of Saturday? I set my date as Saturday since one of the organizers said they would go down on Friday and find a meet up place.

    August 22, 2013

    • Kevin W.

      We are going both days. There are two separate Meetups .... one for Friday and one for Saturday.

    I am excited about the opportunity to come and learn from those who have more experience than I have a present. Thanks for allowing me to participate!

    Hi everyone. Thanks for accepting me to the group. This sounds like a whole lot of fun and I am excited. I photographed a hot air balloon show up here in our neck of the woods three years ago and won second place in their photo contest. They are fun to watch. I need to check my schedule and see if I am able to make this one. I hope so. Thanks again everyone.
