"A hot air balloon was forced to land on a busy Winnipeg street last night.
The incident happened about 9 p.m. at Portage Avenue and Mount Royal in St. James.
No one was injured when the balloon was forced to land because of swirling winds, said Martial Jacques of Balloons Aloft. Six people, including Jacques, were onboard.
Police were called to the scene to direct traffic on Portage.
The same balloon was seen in the area of Canad Inns stadium during last night's Bombers game."[url=http://www.winnipegsun.com/News/Winnipeg/2008/08/09/6397716.html]http://www.winnipegsun.com/News/Winnipe ... 97716.html[/url]
