Balloonfest in Cleveland 1986
In 1986 Cleveland created an amazing world record of releasing the 1.5 million balloons. People gathered at Cleveland’s Public Square to watch this breathtaking event. But the event ended up as a kind of disaster for the everyday people of Cleveland.
The tethered balloons, which had been filled throughout the morning by 2,500 students and volunteers inside of an enormous white plastic balloon bin on the southwest quadrant of the square, resembled a hug multicolored dome before they were let loose. Within seconds after larger balloons lifted the net from the bin, the balloons obscured the tower, then floated skyward, soon becoming specks among the clouds.
Here are the pic of that event.
