Memory Walk

Timaru Christian School was invited to participate in a local Memory Walk to launch an Alzheimer's Awareness campaign. Students had to turn up in their school uniform, march up the main street of town holding helium balloons, then let them go after the speeches.
The walk was well attended and heralded by the local Pipe Band - always treat.
A couple of stray balloons found their way heavenward before the appointed time; some balloons weren't liberated at all, but rather deflated and their contents merrily inhaled.  The pair of gazers below were guilty of the latter.
Up they go!  I did hear several questions about what happens to the balloons eventually.  Anyone with an answer is welcome to comment!
After the formalities we were entertained with a live little band and a sausage sizzle.
