    Fondest memory: Each year they have special shapes. This year, the special shapes included: Energizer Bunny, Felix the Cat, and Upside Down Humpty Dumpty.

    There are also sponsored balloons (like ReMax). It is a very colorful photo-op and family friendly activity.

    Well after arriving by train...

    Favorite thing: Well after arriving by train to Plano, I settled in with my girlfriend and her family and rested for a few days, after spending 2 nights and days on the train.

    Fondest memory: My best memory of Plano has to be the sizes of the houses, compared to back in New Zealand they are huge.
