The sight of a hot air baloon lit up at night is something you will never get. Every year a balloon festival is held in Tigard, Oregon near Portland. As part of the activities, they hold a "Nightglow" in the evening. About a dozen balloons are inflated and tethered to the ground. They have to fire the burners periodically to keep the balloon inflated.

Here are a couple shots from the nightlow event about three years ago.

Very nice images. I'm sure that is a sight to behold in person. It seems to be good for the advertisers also
