The city of Hamilton has been taken over by balloons for the past few days as part of the Balloons over Waikato event. Balloons fill the sky almost every moment of the day, wherever you look. The weather has been fantastic - almost no wind - which has made life so much easier for the balloon pilots.
The festival ends tonight with the Night Glow concert, known as Hamilton's Big Night Out, on the grounds of the University of Waikato. The highlight is the light and sound show featuring the balloons, followed by a fireworks display.
