I had the best time at the Spring and Polo Match Park in McAllen tx, sincerely yours makes it to the Valley to watch a polo match and the so anticipated hot air balloon festival; although the latest wasn’t what I had in mind the rest happened according to plan.

It’s not the first time the people of the RGV enjoy a Polo Match, but it is the first time that it includes a hot air balloon festival, unfortunately, only 3 tethered balloons out of the 6 expected were on site during the morning, the afternoon ride was canceled due to gusting winds.
