    The Darth Vader one is great, got to see it in Hamilton NZ last year, looks menacing lit up. They also had a great haunted house and pop up pirate.

  13. Karin Stewart

    I LOVE these balloons! ….and definitely it should be a flying PIG. I’m from Cincinnati where the Flying Pig Marathon is!

  14. Jef

    fun, but do the parade ones belong? they’re not hot air balloons, so the shape constraints are much less for them.

  15. Reilly

    I was waiting for a hot air george bush… :(

  16. delere

    The cow is awesome. A photo of it with the moon “under” it would be cool.

    The cow is the best but maybe that is true because of the beautiful background of that picture. No…. the cows the best.

  35. maryam

    wonderfull..The cow is best of all…

  36. Ryyx

    Yeah, those parade balloons don’t really belong with the special shape hot air balloons. They’re something entirely different. As a balloon crew member, I can tell you special shapes are really tough to inflate, control, and pilot.

  37. Ravi Shankar

    All the above creations are really wonderful. I like to thank all the people who were involved in preparing this fantastic job. Keep it up !!!!!

  38. valerie

    My cousin would really love the thomas the train one.

    They should have made their basket into a moon, for the cow jumps over the moon
