Up goes the first balloon
And it's all about the logo's
Clash of the striped balloons
This is supposed to be a crowd pleaser, why are you girls not smiling?
Best view of the whole event up here
Yes it's all about the logo's and what exactly is Remax?
Everyone framed by balloons
Inflated balloons and decapitated heads, is there a connection?
Head looking like it's inflating the balloon
And here comes the nose, bouncy, bouncy.
Joey and Mother Kangaroo following their noses towards a giant blue, striped balloon
That nose from another angle
Happy Joey's, Australia is well represented here. What a remarkable designer.
Super happy, we have lift off
Another Kangaroo being inflated, maybe it's the Dad, he has boxing gloves like a Dad
Yes it definitley is a Dad Kangaroo looking at a balloon, too far away to punch.
Dad's leading the way, everyone's safe.
Then we have the Kiwi contender. Mr do-it-yourself painter bloke.
First time out in public for this guy, completely computer designed.
Don't know about the droopy beak.
Maybe that's why he doesn't look as happy as the Aussies.
It's farewell to all those lovely balloons, destined for some green field far away.
Is the green one sinking or is it an optical illusion?
Further away until just about out of sight, only the people left, wistfully wishing they were going too.
Creativity quotes of the day
No-body can be uncheered by a balloon, Winnie the Pooh
Imagination is like a lofty building reared to meet the sky - fancy is a balloon that soars at the wind's will, Frank Gelett Burgess
