A multicolored hot-air balloon gets ready to rise as the Bristol International Balloon Fiesta launched today. More than 60 of these high-flying balloons filled the air in Bristol, England, this morning for the four-day hot-air ballooning event, which began in 1978. There should be hundreds of balloons involved in this year's event, which is set to attract 500,000 attendees and include hot-air balloon teams from the US, Dubai, France, and Switzerland.
