After the scheduled launch time passed and they were still trying to decide if it was too windy, I was afraid this festival was going to be a flop. There wasn't much to do so the kids were getting a little bored. As the first balloon finally started to inflate, they became excited though. Eventually about 15 balloons went up. Many of the ones that didn't fly did inflate later for the balloon glow. It was really neat to see them up close.
