Nate and I went to watch the balloons take off early this morning. They had designs ranging from Coca-Cola ads to potato plants, and of course the colorful geometric designs. I had never seen them up close before; it was cool. To launch, they stretch them out on the ground, blow some cool air into them, and then use the torch thing to heat it up so it stands. The 1st video is of a balloon filling with hot air. It was beautiful to watch them all drifting away!
