People Monday – The Balloon race

The Balloon race, originally uploaded by anthonli.

Two Saturdays ago, I came across this “race” in HCMC. Participants each hold a giant white balloon and run a short 50m section of the road beside the Sheraton Hotel.
I can’t really fathom the reason for the race, my friend suggested that it’s a publicity stunt. It doesn’t look like some varsity event as the participants weren’t wearing their varsity shirts.
Any ideas?
