Balloon Festival in Natchez

This weekend, we attended the Great Mississippi River Balloon Race in Natchez, Mississippi.  It was voted Mississippi's Best Fair or Festival last year. Natchez is one of Mississippi's most beautiful cities with gorgeous Southern homes and restaurants.  David's good friend, Key, is from Natchez.  It was great to see him, and we felt very lucky to have him as our tour guide for the weekend.

Yesterday was a perfect fall day to spend on the river.  While watching the balloons, we enjoyed lots of good food and fun bands.  I think it was my first time to see a hot air balloon in person!  Here are some pictures from the festival:

If you haven't been to Natchez or the balloon festival, I would highly recommend both.  Natchez is a charming place and one I hope we'll visit often.

Have a great week!
