The world gets festive on Labor Day weekend

We got lots of colorful iReports from festivals all over the country (and one from Scotland) this weekend, two from first-time submitters. Besides Dragon*Con here in Atlanta, iReporters sent in dispatches from the annual Colorado Balloon Classic, Southern Decadence in New Orleans, a unicycle festival in New York City and the three-week Edinburgh International Festival.

 

Unibasket, Unihockey, Unicanman: the balance and coordination required is mind-boggling. iReporter sjunat55 attended New York City's first unicycle festival, featuring basketball, hockey, juggling, jump-roping, and more...all on unicycles. The festival was held this past weekend on Governor's Island.

 

First-time iReporter nikongirl89 of Colorado Springs shot this photo at the Colorado Balloon Classic Saturday. At nightfall, pilots light the balloons to create the "GLO" effect. The balloons are filled with air but do not launch.

 

ParkerW is a professional photographer in New Orleans, but this was his first time attending Southern Decadence, an annual celebration of gay life, music and culture in the French Quarter. Men in costume as well as protesters participated in Sunday's parade.

 

First-time contributor moonbucket of East Lothian, Scotland, goes most years to the Edinburgh International Festival, which he said draws hundreds of thousands of visitors from the U.S., Europe, Japan and other countries and thousands of performers also from all over the globe. This was the first time he photographed the fireworks display marking the end of the festival Sunday.
