Balloons and Floods

My dream last night started with me on a highway in a car. I was driving over hills and to some sort of festival. As i was coming over a hill i noticed a ton of hot air balloons. All of which were rolling along the ground and falling out of the sky. None had the baskets attached to them. Some were bounding along the ground and others just rolling or falling out of the sky. This continued as I came to a gate which was apparently the US/Mexico border. I wanted to get around the huge wooden gate that stood in my way. My sister was on the other side with her family and were preparing to watch some fire works. It was still daytime. Then there was lots of rain and flooding around either side of the gate that i couldn't walk though. so I waited. There were a lot of people around and it was very crowded. Soon the rain stopped and the flood waters began to lower. I could get around the gate on what seemed to be the rocky bed of a brook that the water drained out of. I walked around the gate being careful not to step in the mud and searched for my sister and her family. I remember finding her husband in the crowd and his mother. All the while there were still balloons in the air and they were still bouncing and falling out of the sky. There was some kind of list we were talking about that had to do with work posted on a wooden board on the wall. That is where i stopped remembering the dream. I am pretty sure it was getting dark by this time.
