Photos: Festival of Balloons features unbelievable balloon sculptures

The balloon art that you'll see at the Festival of Balloons -- a celebration of balloon sculpture that runs from 11 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. at the Sheraton Downtown Denver Hotel this coming Sunday, March 30 -- will make the typical balloon dog or balloon bouquet look like a child's scribblings amidst artistic masterpieces. The organizers have solicited help from some of the best balloon sculptors on the planet to create the featured works. For a sample of what you'll be able to see Sunday, check out the photos below.
