    Every Memorial day in Decatur, AL, they put on a hot air balloon festival with 50-60 balloons. This is the first year we've ever gone. Had to get up early because thats when they lift off.

    The first few pics are of the "Hare" balloon of a hare and hound race.

    Once the "Hare" gets up off the ground, the rest of the balloons can inflate and chase.

    We were rather curious as to where they would land. We guessed the private air field behind one of the community colleges. We found this balloon that had landed but was trying to get back in the air in the airfield. We later found out that the balloons had landed in some open farmland several miles from the airstrip.

    All the links to the images appear to be broken.

    They aren't loading on the phone, but firefox on the PC seems to be showing them just fine.

    On edit, it appears I needed to change the privacy settings of the album. Thanks for the heads up.

  8. Lovely work. I've been to a couple of these and they are impressive.
