there's a joke hidden somewhere in this photo....

The Energizer Bunny takes off - he has a 15-30 minute head start...




The 37th annual Great Balloon Race (http://www.greatforestparkballoonrace.com ) is was held on Sat September 15, 2007. The balloons are all setup close together in a large field and then they started inflating slowly. The race is called a "tortoise and hare" race because a lead balloon takes off and lands at a distant area - the "tortoise". The other balloons take off one by one(the "hares") and find the lead balloon. Once they find the lead balloon they drop a sack of birdseed as close as possible to that balloon. The balloon that drops their sack of birdseed closest to the "tortoise" wins the race.


This event took place in Forest Park (http://stlouis.missouri.org/citygov/parks/forestpark ) which is in the center of St Louis and is 40% bigger than Central Park in New York City.




Have a great weekend!!!!
