It was what balloon fans had waited for -- hot air balloons dotting the horizon. Seventy-two balloons went up on the final day in the Key Grab, in which pilots attempt to fly in low on a pole target to score points.
The object is to hit two targets with colored markers, and try to toss a ring on the centerpole for a $9,000 prize. No one got the pole, though some came very close. It's the capper and traditional fan favorite of the event.
The pilots will now pack up and head off the the next race in the next city, and leave balloon fans here looking to next year.
