The Kissing Bees, Lilly and Joey, are considered 'special shape balloons' and were certainly a big favorite with the crowd and of mine.

These sweet bees rise to the air kissing, then slowly separate until they are holding hands. How long they lock hands depends on the weather. At a certain point, the velcro separates and each begins its own flight (see picture #2).

This type of balloon that is not shaped like the traditional round balloon can participate in the GLOWDEO. The balloons are tethered to the ground and lit up at night, producing a lovely glow in the dark.
