Balloons Ahoy!

As mentioned before, the 9th annual Gulf Coast Balloon Fest is happening in Foley June 13-15. There was a competition to see which balloonist could maneuver his/her craft to drop a weight on a target. Here is some of the action:

Balloons fly when the air is still.
That means early morning (Yawn) or late afternoon.

The first balloon makes for the target

This one came down well off target.

These two also missed.
It was quite a sight
The target is the white cross on the ground between the
orange and Remax balloons.

Overhead! This one came very close!

Filling an envelope w/ a fan so the crowd could get a good look.

One of the balloonists decorated the chase vehicle.
