When dawn broke over Casper on Friday and residents began to wake up, they looked up into the skies and saw something that they don’t normally see. There, right above their heads, were numbers hot air balloons. That’s because today was the annual kick-off of the Casper Balloon Roundup, sponsored by Re/Max The Group, Parkway Plza and Townsquare Media.

Approximately 20 Balloons were launched and floated over the city, in an event that truly had to be seen to be believed. Luckily, we were on hand to grab some photos of the event, as well as a video of a 1st person POV of a balloon taking flight.
