I've had the opportunity once to take a hot air balloon flight. And it's awesome! If you ever get a chance don't pass it up.

This weekend the annual Great Plains Balloon Race will be held here in Sioux Falls. Check out the dates and times below.

It's quite the show when they are getting ready to launch. The teams having to layout the balloon, ready the basket, fire up the burners and filling the balloon with hot air is a tasking job.

I really hope the weather will cooperate.
