El Paso Space Festival Rocket Launch

We had a literal blast at the end of the Space Festival. We bought the tickets off Eventbrite, but didn’t know that we were supposed to pick up the rockets to build and decorate last Sunday at the mall event. They gave it to us and we decided to build and shoot it another time since their Grandpa shoots rockets monthly and it was raining that day, but the kids got to do all the other fun activities.

There was so much going on, with the Scouts helping kids decorate and build the rockets, RC airplane demos, drone demos, the fire department was there to show how to put out a bonfire, and we had sooo much fun making space nebulas, erm, tie dye t-shirts.

What a great ending to the Festival. I don’t know how they’ll top this year!
