High River saw a sky full of hot air balloons this past weekend (PHOTOS)

Sure, nowadays we have planes, trains, automobiles, jet packs, drones, and adult tricycles, but there is one form of transportation that will never quite lose its charm: hot air balloons.

Just 45 minutes south of Calgary, High River is home to the Heritage Inn International Balloon Festival, a celebration of hot air balloons and the opportunity for us regular, stuck-on-the-ground folks to get a chance to see the big balloons in action.

The event took place over the past weekend, though many days of the event were unfortunately cancelled due to high winds.

The ever-popular Balloon Glow Night was also cancelled this year due to COVID-19 concerns.

However, the weather decided to calm down by the weekend, which allowed for the balloons to fill the skies over High River.

Here’s a look at some of our favourite photos of the fantastic sight:
