There is something magical about hot air balloons, especially when you can can see several all at once.  Once a year Temecula Valley hosts a hot air balloon festival.  This event is so fun it is something that you should experience once in your life.  This year was the 35th year of the Temecula Valley Balloon & Wine Festival. It is held at Lake Skinner Regional Park and is a three day festival where you can try wines from Temecula Valley, ride hot air balloons and enjoy the weekend with friends and family.

Krigler has a client list that includes everyone from Earnest Hemingway, John F.

This is a great gift for father’s day coming up and…
