At this time last year, America was in total lockdown. There was no school. There were no carnivals. Beaches were closed. Businesses were closed. Now, America is reawakening as the COVID-19 pandemic’s end is in sight as hundreds of millions of vaccinations have been administered.
This drone pilot captured a part of life many of us have been stripped of the past year, the great American carnival.
The owner of Yellow Rose Drones captured this video in Retama Park.
“On the way home from New Braunfels, we passed by Retama Park in Selma, Texas,” they said. “This well lit carnival was very obvious from the street, so we decided to come back the next night and video it with one of our drones. We first obtained written authorization to fly up to 400ft AGL (Above Ground Level) after 2100 hours in an area normally restricted to 50ft AGL even in daytime.”
