The University of Waikato hosted thousands of spectators for the annual Balloons Over Waikato ASB Nightglow at Waikato University on Saturday night.
Clear skies made for excellent conditions and thousands of spectators lined the banks of the university field to watch the tethered hot air balloons inflate to music.
The University of Waikato is a partner of Balloons Over Waikato, now in its 11th year, which has been voted Best Waikato Event four times by the Hamilton public and won the Business Excellence Awards for the not-for-profit sector.
The yearly event ran for five days at Innes Common, Hamilton Lake and The University of Waikato.
Balloons Over Waikato will take place on April 3-7 next year and planning will start almost immediately.
