We went there twice.
The first night we went specifically to see the balloon flares, and we were on time. Okay, maybe we were 4 minutes late. BUT THEY STARTED HALF AN HOUR BEFORE THEY WERE SCHEDULED TO DO SO AND WE MISSED THE WHOLE THING!!! **&^%$^@@
So we ended up letting the little boy go wild on the bouncy castles :) and space shuttles and whatnot.
Seeing the little boy have so much fun made me a lot less disappointed ( or miffed ).
The next day, it rained like crazy and it seemed like the whole event would be cancelled, but the rain let up, and we went back again for some "official business". We even managed to catch a few minutes of flaring!
Yuckiest part of the night? Mushy wet muddy fields.
Best part of the night? A Humongaloid Funnel Cake :)
