    No, no, no.

    They are gorgeous but so dangerous: they can kill or injure animals, cause fires, misdirect the emergency services and litter the countryside. Not worth it.

    Dangerous and flat out littering.

    @ferdie224:  Many venues do not allow their release. Check with your site first.

    I would think this is terrible for the environment…which isn’t an option in your poll so I guess I’ll just go with “this is stupid”.

    I honestly don’t understand the big deal about them.  I’ve seen a lot of offers on groupon and I just don’t get it.

    I’d refuse to participate because of how bad it is for the environment. I feel the same way about balloon releases.
