Colorful paper balloons will reach the sky in a festival that will bring together craftsmen from around Mexico and Brazil.

“Lights in the Sky” will also include family-friendly cultural events and workshops Aug. 5-7 in Tahmek, 20 kilometers southwest of Izamal.

The festive balloons and paper lanterns are all handmade and biodegradable. They range in size, and don’t carry people. In the air, they eventually catch fire and return to the earth. It’s an amazing sight.
