Mexico skies pop with colour as International Hot Air Balloon Festival returns

Hundreds of hot air balloons of various colours and shapes filled the sky of Leon, in the state of Guanajuato, on Friday. More than 200 hot air balloons participated in the 2020 International Hot Air Balloon Festival, an annual event that has been held for 18 years without interruption. However, due to the coronavirus pandemic, this year the event is not permitted to have a physical audience. Instead the festival is virtual and will be transmitted through the festival’s social networks. The festival will run until November 16. (ruptly.tv)
