Balloon festival close-up - August, 2017

Everyone else had the same idea, but a parking space opened up in front of us. The sky was full of balloons and this one landed close by. The pilot told us all about balloons and the “Bangra version of Terminator” film his balloon was advertising, demonstrated the burner (a BIG flame!) then we saw them take down the balloon and cart it off in a trailer! Result!
