Hot air balloons fly high at Callaway Gardens

COLUMBUS, GA (WTVM) -

It's hot, like floating and some are called it a once in a lifetime opportunity.  Hundreds lined up at Callaway Gardens for the 14th annual Sky High Hot Air Balloon Festival.

Several of the balloons tethered 40 to 50 ft in the air while a few people had the chance take off.  Callaway Gardens says the festival is their way of ending the summer with a bang.

"It was wonderful," said Ashley Doyle. "I think everybody should experience it. It's amazing!  It's really a soft feeling, kind of like you're flying."

The festival continues through tomorrow night.  A rep says they will also attempt to have another glow event, where at dusk they light up the night sky with the balloons.
