  • The balloons are inflated on their sides using powerful fans. Here a balloon pilot prepares to tip the basket and balloon upright as he heats the air inside the balloon.

The 13th annual Sky High Hot Air Balloon Festival kicked off last night at Calloway Gardens in Pine Mountain, GA with the traditional balloon glow. Hundreds came out to eat barbecue and play on the beach Friday evening as the sun set. At 7:30, roughly fifteen 15 vans hauling hot air balloons backed down the beach and unfurled the massive balloons. At 8pm, the balloon glow began.

The festival continues throughout the weekend, details here.
