Canberra Festival is coming soon, and I enjoyed the Hot air Balloon Fiesta immensely last year, also great to meet up with The Department and went shooting the balloons together. I know asphotos and cork were down there too, so it would be great if we all can go together.
In the mean time, I've also contacted the admin of the ACT group, and planning our first interstate flickr meet!!!
My plan would be driving down on the 14th April, Sat for the nighttime spectacular, then stay overnight and ready for the early morning balloon on Sunday 15th April. And in the afternoon, we can have a meet up with the Canberra Flickrites. If you don't want to stay overnight, you can always drive down early morning on Sunday.
This should be a nice exciting little road trip, lots of photo opportunities, and also the very first interstate meet up for SPB. So please put your hand up if you are interested. Then, we can arrange cars, accomodation etc...
The 2007 Balloon Fiesta Nighttime Spectacular will be held on 14 April 2007 at Manuka Oval, Manuka ACT - Gates open 6 p.m.
