In Belgium, massive Darth Vader balloon celebrates Star Wars
The Associated Press

CEROUX, Belgium: A hot air balloon in the shape of Darth Vader's helmet took off from the square in this Belgian village Thursday to commemorate the 30th anniversary of the "Star Wars" sci-fi saga.

The balloon, 26 meters (86 feet) high and 21 meters (69 feet) wide, with three people in the basket, took the air to the cheers of several hundred people participating in a balloon festival.

The balloon, in the shape of the helmet of the legendary "Star Wars" villain, was the brainchild of Belgian Star Wars fans and cost "in the region of €100,000 (US$135,000)" to build and operate, organizers said.

The original "Star Wars" movie was released on May 25, 1977.

I had a wonderful time this year.  I got to visit princesamari right before Christmas and we exchanged our balloon-themed stockings filled with all kinds of goodies on a wonderful picnic.  We had a nice brunch and proceeded to open gifts.  You might imagine and be correct to say that there were some balloon related gifts as well!





I received a beautiful Christmas balloon that was also a musical wind-up.



I also got a hand made balloon decoration from my darling!  Very nice beadwork. ;)



And another gift was this huge balloon wall clock!



The balloons on it are 3-D and very colorful.  Our collections are growing and we keep finding unique items everywhere!
