Photo Story: Provo’s hot air balloon festival


America’s Freedom Festival at Provo celebrated the 4th of July with an annual hot air balloon fest each morning on July 2, 3 and 5. Utah residents bring chairs and blankets and wait for balloons to be blown up. Once they’re blown up, everyone walks around to see the balloons and take pictures. The balloons normally launch into the sky, but didn’t on July 5 when these photos were taken because of bad weather.
