festival of balloons

Each June there is a balloon festival near our house. On Saturday morning we woke up at 5 am to go see the balloons launch.

As we walked down to the launch field these balloons flew right overhead.

Once onto the field, we got right next to the balloons as they filled with hot air.

There were drones with cameras flying next to the balloons. The little black spot in the photo below is one of the drones.

They slowly drifted south of the park.
