A hot air balloon cultural festival debuted at Shazhou new town in Zhangjiagang, Jiangsu province on Nov 18 and will run through Nov 26.

Dozens of unique hot air balloons floated through the air as high as a seven-storey building on the opening day, presenting a magnificent dreamy scene.

The event opens from 9:00 am to 16:30 pm each day at Herb Garden in Zhangjiagang's Xinzhou town.

To keep safe, three wire ropes will be fixed on the ground to anchor the balloon, like a giant kite in the sky. [Photo provided to chinadaily.com.cn]
