    It's the attack of the Giant Flying Pink Bunny Drum Corp!!!

    They had the annual Forest Park Balloon race today and they all ended up over in my area. The lead balloon for the "hound and hare" is the Everready Bunny balloon, this thing stands 16 stories high!!!!!

    some more balloons.... the "hounds"

    these were taken from my backyard today. My dogs did not like it when the burners fired off to keep the balloons up. They were low!

    this is a major race on the ballooning circuit and is held every year here in St. Louis.

    That first one just looks so surreal! No wonder your dogs freaked out. Beautiful pictures, though!

    Cool pictures, Ilikai. We've had a couple of balloon festivals around here and I love to watch them. The unusually shaped ones are neat. Mr. Peanut is so tall that conditions have to be perfect.
