This year I have been attending quite a few of the local festivals. This weekend was the Plano Balloon Festival. They were celebrating their 30th year and it's become a magnificent event. Of course the balloons are the main attraction but they also have good local music and vendors of all kinds. We decided to give Outback Jack's peppersteak sandwich a try and it was awesome! I was very impressed by the attendance, it seemed like every inch of space was taken up by people. The balloons are quite a sight and it's exciting to see them take off into the sky. The day is capped off by a balloon glow which is definitely something to be seen. They also had a fireworks display last night, but we opted to leave early to beat the traffic. The festivities continue today so there is still a chance to attend. Here are a few shots and more can be seen here, with more to come soon: Colleen G. Drew

Today I went down to Southlake to check out the Kiwanis Club's Annual Butterfly Festival. It was a rainy day and inside the tent it was a bit dark, but I managed to get a few shots. Their festival is going until tomorrow evening when they will release the butterflies. It was interesting, there were some flowering plants and to lure the butterflies they had pieces of watermelon that you could attach to a stick. When we were leaving we noticed a lady selling butterfly specimens and you could purchase Painted Lady caterpillars that you raise to butterflies. So, we decided to give it a try. I will keep you posted on their progress. Hopefully it works out alright. Here are a couple of shots, more can be seen here: http://colgdrew.redbubble.com
