Several of these lite and sent off into the night, right after a wedding. It is supposed to bring the couple good luck.
My buddy Linda Houghton shot this wedding with me, and it had been dry here, we were concerned that these things would land and cause huge fires.
They looked to operate much like hot air balloons.
