    I've heard the balloons get caught in powerlines and also birds in flight can become tangled.


     


    I know it's pretty to see them floating in the air, but not worth the risk.


     


    On a side note, rice, thrown at the groom and bride after they have tied the knot is not good for the birds to eat.   Throw bird seed instead.

    Most certainly

    I've always wondered why we allow people to do that. Those thousands of balloons have to end up somewhere. My question has been "where?" Not a good idea.

    Those balloons cause many problems! QUIT releasing them!

    No I don't think it's a good idea, and the lanterns with fire inside should definitely not be done.

    Those lanterns always freaked me out! I mean have you heard of forest fires!?

    ....the potential for hurting birds/animals is real


    ....no

    clu

    Thank you! Let's keep people aware of the dangers!

    Sorry Clu,at the risk of upsetting the whole of AKA.i am not a greeny or tree hugger..i do not believe in purposely harming animals,,but always humans first..>>>>>>>><<<<<<<<..

    I agree it's always humans first. But, what is the purpose of releasing balloons for ANY reason and more importantly, where do they end up? Birds and animals aside, isn't it just shooting "garbage" up into the air? It will land somewhere. Where? I don't want them in my yard or trees.
