King Valley's second annual balloon festival's opening was a great success with hundreds of people braving the early morning cold on Saturday to watch 18 hot air balloons line up and lift off.
Later on Saturday, balloons lit up in a choreographed performance to music during Brown Brothers Night Glow.
Balloon festival organiser Paul Gibbs said it was unclear if they would be able to take off on Monday morning because of the predicted weather, but the weekend had been wonderful.
