We finally made it to Balluminaria!  Each November at Mirror Lake in Eden Park 12-14 tethered hot air balloons assemble around the lake.  Once they are all filled they light up simultaneously.  It is the most beautiful sight!  I’ve been wanting to attend the festival for years, but it’s just never happened.  Tonight we loaded everyone up and arrived at Eden park about 5pm.  The festival is from 4-6, but there were still quite a few balloons that needed inflating.  After all the balloons are inflated you can walk right up to the balloons.  Three of the pics above are shot looking directly up into the balloon.  We ended up leaving before it was totally dark (we didn’t dress warm enough).  Next year we’ll be more prepared with warm clothes and a thermos of hot chocolate.  If you’ve never been to Balluminaria I highly recommend it!
