    The colorful annual event, which has been held in Leon, Mexico, every second weekend of November since 2002, gathers 400,000 spectators from across the globe and features 200 hot air balloons of various shapes and sizes and pilots from 15 different countries.

    The Leon International Balloon Festival, the biggest in Latin America and one of the most renowned around the world, has been held for the fifteenth time on November 17-20. This year, the event was dedicated to the victims of the two deadly earthquakes that struck Mexico in September.
