Eventually we despaired of ever seeing any balloons in flight. Several hours had passed since we arrived so we decided to head off home. As we were taking the fairly long walk back to the car park we heard a strange noise in the air, and as we looked back we saw that they had actually managed to get a couple of balloons up.
It wasn’t the masses of balloons all taking off at once that we had anticipated, but it was better than nothing I suppose.
