Lake Havasu City Balloon Festival

Postby Coral » Wed Dec 24, 2014 2:37 pm

This is such a great event to photograph - 2015 January 16. You have to get there really early though. The first time we went we missed the morning launch.

Thank you! They launch the balloons from all over the city, a lot of them from the golf course. They don't launch them from the water though, Onslow. We have taken photos from the golf course where they have the festival set up and also from where these photos were taken. They come down to the water and actually hit the water with the baskets. I think it's called splash and dash. There is also a night time event where they light them up - it's all depending on the wind though. It's so colorful! I think in January we will try another location. From the golf course, looking down on the water you're shooting right into the sun.
