Hot Air Balloon Festival photos

Pegasicorn's picture
Went to the Balloon Festival my state was having yesterday. Took around 20 photos (but left the 2 of spider-pig out since they didn't turn out well).
I'm sure my phone hates me for taking so many. |D

The launch begins.

The wind was sending some of them overhead.

Some had obvious product placement. |D The Pepsi can was cool though.

They were dropping chocolate. @_@ I wish I'd been in that section of the crowd.

That Snapple bottle isn't a hot air balloon. It's just a balloon over the Snapple booth. |D

Spot the tuxedo.

That butterfly was the most complicated one there.

The shark was freaking me out with how high it went. o_o

Cool Sony camera penguin is cool. Cool

And here's one of the video clips I took. Liked this one the best.

So many! That must have been

So many! That must have been really fun. I want to go to one some day; in my area we have a lot of hot air balloons during the summer taking off from the park, but never a big festival like that.

My favorite is the shark.

@Dag: It was interesting. And

@Dag: It was interesting. And there was a sort of flea market/bazaar set up to walk around before the balloons went up. I don't think I'd seen hot air balloons "in person" before that either, so it was cool to see that many at once. =]

@knsm073: From the way the crowd was cheering, I think it was a lot of people's favorite too. XD The tail kind of flapped a bit at first.

Those are awesome! 8D

Oooh, that must have been awesome! I would love to go to something like that as well, I don't think I've ever saw a hot air balloon...I think they are really dreamlike somehow - the various colours against the sky makes them look so pretty *u*

It made burning in the sun

It made burning in the sun for a few hours worth it. Laughing out loud I'd just never go up in one; I'd pass out from the height. |D
