Balloons over Martinborough

The Wairarapa Balloon Festival is on again after a couple of years, and Martinborough played host this morning. From 7am, balloons lifted off from several locations in the town. One launch site was the Martinborough School playing grounds, just down the street from our house. Other years we’ve enjoyed watching balloons drifting past, their silent flight punctuated from time to time by propane-fuelled dragons’ breath. Today we went to the school grounds and watched  preparation and lift-offs. I took a few photos:
