El Paso - Dozens of balloons are taking to the sky this weekend for the 25th annual KLAQ Balloon Fest.
Pilots, riders, and spectators all gathered at Grace Gardens in the Upper Valley to watch the balloons take off.
For many people, the festival is a great family fun and relaxing.
We talked to several people about what it is like to see El Paso from thousands of feet above...
"It's not a frightening feeling really peaceful enjoyable thing to do we love to share it with everybody."
"You get to see city from above majestic."
"Most peaceful beautiful experience I have in aviation."
The balloon festival runs through Monday.
