I love hot air balloons, I think they are just so beautiful. If you're looking for a fun weekend trip and a chance to see a lot of beautiful hot air balloons, be sure to check out the Second Annual Paris Balloon and Music Festival in Paris, Texas Friday, July 14 and Saturday July, 15.

The festival fun will be Friday and Saturday 5PM to 10PM both nights at the Lamar County Fairgrounds at 570 E. Center Street in Paris, Texas.

According to the Paris Balloon and Music Festival website, there will be live music, a Children's Fun Zone, food trucks, arts and crafts and other vendors.

Friday night's musical acts will be the Texas Blues Butchers followed by Hannah Kirby from Sulphur Springs and finalist on "The Voice".

Saturday night it's the Billion Dollar Blues opening for Jake Worthington another finalist on "The Voice".

Weather permitting, the hot air balloons will launch, early both Saturday and Sunday mornings beginning at 6:30AM at the Love Civic Center.
