Happy Owl-O-Ween!

Hot air balloons...


Halloween costumes...


and spooky spectacles! 


Welcome to Atlanta's Owl-O-Ween Festival!


I've been looking forward to this Halloween party since I heard about it over the summer, and let me tell you, it did not disappoint! 


Husband and I wandered from stage to stage, sampling southern favorites from the food trucks, like andouille sausage po' boys and spicy craft beers. We were spellbound by the fire-throwers and acrobats, and we loved watching all the party-goers in costume strut their stuff on the runway for the "costume showdown." 



The best were the hot air balloon though! So many colors and creative designs, and it was amazing to watch the fires flare up and lift the balloons into the air.  
    



This was definitely a night to remember, and we can't wait to go back next year. Wishing you a Happy Owl-O-Ween!
