I don't understand why so many schools and other organizations release balloons into the sky. Sure, it's fun to watch, it's fun to do, it can even be quite symbolic, etcetera... but it is still littering. Isn't littering wrong? Illegal, even? But, we don't ever see the balloons come down, right? So really, they magically disappear into rainbows and sunshine.
Oh well. At least it makes for good photos. Happy 50th Birthday Parowan Elementary School.
