EL PASO - The 27th annual KLAQ Balloon Festival is well underway in the borderland. After the hot air balloons, the party moved over to Wet N' Wild Waterworld in Anthony, TX Saturday evening.
People are going to the water park for water rides, picnics and three days of concerts.
One man told Newschannel 9 the borderland should have more fun music events like this.
"I think that [they need] more events like this in El Paso. Usually they have them in Albuquerque, and this is awesome scenery,” said Ruben Grado.
The balloon festival continues through Monday. It starts every morning at 6:15 a.m. at the Santa Teresa Country Club; and then, the concerts move to Wet N' Wild at 6 p.m.
