I've wanted to do this every year and have yet to make it. Anyone up for heading to Monroe on Saturday afternoon? Go hear some blues, watch the balloon launch and top it off with the balloon glow. Sounds like tons of photo ops to me!

I'll (Laura) drive if anyone wants to car-pool!
We'll meet at the Verona Park & Ride:
Look for a Meetup sigh in Bill's windshield. Meet there at 2:30, leave the P&R at 2:37. We should arrive in Monroe at about 3:45. For those not joining the carpool we can meet at the stock pavilion, it's the only brick building on the fairgrounds. We'll meet at the stock pavilion at 4:00.
Be aware that free parking will be difficult to find near the fairgrounds. Please bring cash to help defray the cost of parking and carpooling for your driver.
