Thursday morning, excited Lake Havasu schoolchildren waited in anticipation for a very special happening — a visit from some of the hot air balloons in town for the 7th Annual Balloonfest.
Because of wind, only a couple of the balloons were able to be inflated, but pilots explained how hot air balloons work, and the students were given the opportunity to get an up-close view, some even treated to the opportunity to sit in the baskets.
