Hot Air Ballons at the Basin Reserve



It's Easter Weekend so what else do Wellingtonians do to celebrate? The light up the Basin Reserve with a display of Hot Air Balloons....

The fun is part of the Levin Lift Off 

Here's some pictures from @craigdolph who was in the Basin Reserve as the ballons were being prepared.

And here's one I took from the second story:

The ballons are being lit up in time to some piece of classical music that every knows but can't name. It reminds me of the film Close Encounters of the Third Kind when the aliens come and communicate with light and sound...

What I loved about all this was I took the last picture put on twitter, noticed that @craigadolph had post some and I thought I'd do a post. While I'm doing that my Dad rings to ask what the Ballons are like as he's seem then on the news! The seemingly limitless technolgy we are getting these days makes us live in a very small world!
