Hot Air Balloon Pictures

More on the Festival of Balloons held at Cook Park in Tigard, Oregon. The event was held June 21st, 22nd and 23rd, 2013.

Here are some photos from the first post: Festival of Balloons (link) just in case you missed it.

And, if you missed it maybe some of the photos here will help your grief.

It's a first-class event! You have to get up early to watch them to prepare for lifting off and the actual lift into the air. It is quite a show.

They use a giant electric fan to partially inflate the balloons and then they further inflate them using a propane driven device and to use in flight to keep the balloons inflated and to maneuver.
