42 balloonists attended the 10th annual Wah Chang Balloon Festival. The first ballon lifted off the ground at 6:45 am.
As soon as it was up in the air, the other ballonist quickly prepared their rigs for lift-off. I was much relieved to know that everyone one be dressed. :o)))
The balloons where tethered to people as they filled with air.
One by one they were filled and in the air.
What surprised me the most was how quickly they got so small.
