VIDEO: Saga International Balloon Fiesta

by Petty Officer 3rd Class Kyle Palasti
AFN Sasebo

"Journey" travels to Saga International Balloon Fiesta this month to show us how service members and their families experience the annual fall festival near Commander, Fleet Activities Sasebo Japan, with pilots across the world coming together to display their hot air balloons and partake in Asia's biggest aerial event and race. Hundreds of hot air balloons fill the sky to give a colorful sight fit for all ages. For anyone stationed in U.S. 7th Fleet and Commander, U.S. Naval Forces Japan this is a must see!
