The day time is all about the kids. Cute animal balloons and cotton candy. Sadly most of the balloons set fire to themselves before making it off the ground or over the mountain but the kids loved it and didn’t much seem to mind the raining fire... the mountain looked pretty up in smoke though. Beautiful weather for the festival days.
