Billings has an annual Hot Air Balloon event that sends off a lot of hot air balloons and then in the evening they come back, which gives for some cool pictures. A couple of years ago we woke up early and caught the early morning send off and today we caught the evening event. The whole town gets in on this event called the Hot Air Balloon Glow, and it's where each balloon is filled up and between 9-10pm they take turns lighting up their balloons into a really cool glow.
I wanted to catch all off them but space was not permitting, so I only was able to catch a couple glowing at the same time. While waiting for the evening to come, we saw a grass hopper that we took some nice pictures of. I was surprised as to just how many people showed up to the event, there was live music, food trucks, face painting for the kids, portrait station and a number of other vendors to keep everyone entertained while the sun went down.
