As daytime moves to night the balloonists assembled on the beach

While the plan was to glow the balloons at night the preparations started during the evening. From 7pm the teams were in the Gardens and along the Beach to the West of the peir assembling their balloons in time for the glow.

As dusk fell the fans were started and the balloons filled with cold air gradually taking on the traditional tear drop shape of a balloon.

Before the light fails the pilots turned on their burners and the balloons rose from the ground.
