Default Balloon blowing in my yard
Just wanted to share a little story with you all.
We live next to a barn where they do lots of wedding, birthday party and here in Canada its a new trend to put lots of balloon for wedding. Since like 2 years we installed a fence in our backyard and at least once a week balloon gets stuck in our fence. Usually they are not looking the best and under inflated but most of the time they are in perfect shape! Iíve seen 9inch, 12, 16 and sometimes 24, 36inch! There is even one time there was a full balloon column.
The staff realized one day that they were all flying into our yard and contacted us to apologize that they didnít wanted to trespass our property to come get them.
If you have any question donít hesitate to comment below

Since I'm a popper I'd consider them good free toys and I'd say I'd discard them :-)...

I am a popper to so just imagine . I told them to not worry one bit about the balloon in my yard and told them I take care of them!

You should just offer to clean up the balloons after the parties and keep the ones you like, pop the rest. They'd probably let you.

The best way to get things you want is to just ask for them in my experience. Who cares if they question you intentions, just say you want them. I've gotten a bunch of inflatables and some loons for free this way before. The worst they could say is "No".

As an aside. You ever get to see any women popping the balloons either during or after the weddings? I worked at a pizza place where we had tons of birthday parties when I was a teenager and afterward the waitress girls would pop all the balloons to clean up, most of them were pretty attractive so it was cool

I’ve seen lots of cute women pop the balloon arches that they usually put outside! I sent an email to ask them about balloon clean up and they told me that they would love that and will email me on their next event.
