Mitch,
Welcome to the forum...
My daughter and SIL make it a point to stay on the airport grounds every year for the balloon fest. It's where they both first "knew" they would be wife and husband.
MDB and I joined them last year, it was too cool having the giant Dumbo balloon land just behind us, and have so many other balloons circling overhead.

With that said, you really need to be very close for a good view. Even 1/2 mile is too far away. As far as which direction? You can never tell, the winds are different every year. Here's a look at last year...the lady in the bathrobe (next to My Darling Bride) made a fantastic dive to catch the rope to keep Dumbo from running into the fence. It's always a great time there.
