Today’s photos are from the 2007 Pellissippi State Hot Air Balloon Festival. The feature balloon last year was Oggy the Friendly Dragon, an 800-pound balloon (and that’s without the basket, burners, tanks and passengers), that is operated by Skywalker Balloons out of Tampa, FL. Here’s a good shot of Oggy and a few of the other balloons from last year.
The feature balloon this year will be the Energizer Bunny® Hot Hare Balloon, currently the world’s largest hot air balloon. This year will be the 5th annual Pellissippi State Hot Air Balloon Festival and will be held on September 26 – 27, 2008.
