Balloons in the Sky


Every year in Hamilton there's a wee festival called "Balloons over Waikato". Each day for a week balloons are launched in the early morning and evening so you can enjoy the spectacle while you're driving to and from work. It's such a pretty sight to see and something I look forward to every year! (You can see last years blog post on it here and some film pictures I took here.)

On the last day there's an evening event where half the city turns up for an twilight picnic while the sun goes down. This year Jeremy and I went with Ilana from See Me Everywhere and her hubby. We snuggled up with good food and warm blankets and enjoyed the show and fireworks together. Such a good night and a great memory to make!

  2. When I was in Germany I saw something very similar, but by accident
    because did not plan to go to see globes on the air, we were going to rent movies
    and suddenly in the sky we saw lots of those globes, is such a nice show.

    Great photos
