ANGOLA, Ind. (WFFT) - Thousands of people from across the country visited Angola High School this weekend to watch hot air balloons.

Angola Balloons Aloft is an annual competition that attracts balloon pilots from as far away as Texas and California.

The event was created as a family-friendly event, with rides and games, a petting zoo, antique tractor show, and of course food.

Balloons fly every morning and evening, weather permitting.

Around sunset, there is a "balloon glow" where the balloons light up while on the ground.
