Indianola Balloon Classic

Nevada may have Burning Man, but how many states have parties featuring burning balloons?  Of course the balloons are not burning they are grounded at night during the National Balloon festival in Indianola, glowing would be more appropriate. I have always been a huge fan of hot air balloons but I have never seen a night shot of one. I don't know what would be trippier, floating above the earth in a silence punctuated by intermittent hissing of flames, or wandering around a humid field late in an Iowan night surrounded by screaming kids and big round glowing orbs.
