Last post from Squamish Fest: How cool are these balloons?!?

    1 of 1 2 of 1

      Maybe I'm too easily impressed, but how awesome are these balloons?!? Right in the middle of the field at the Tantalus Stage, three enormous strands of white balloons are stretching hundreds of feet into the sky. They've been here all day. But now that dark has fallen, I can see that they have twinkling blue lights attached to them.

      Add to that the pink lighting from around the festival sight, and the balloons resemble a fantastical glowing sea creature stretching up into the air.

      All of those people I saw lighting up during Arctic Monkeys must be losing their minds right now.

      It was the balloons that were high, Eric, not me — they were like 300 feet high. And glowing.

      So I repeat: how cool are these balloons?!?
