Sloths are common in Costa Rica, so Tico got his name as a nod to the country. Picture: Supplied

While the illuminations are taking centre stage at the Enlighten Festival, it won't be long before the hot air balloons lift off in the Canberra Balloon Spectacular, which is also part of the festival.

I like telling local stories with integrity. My greatest hope is that someone will read my story and turn to someone in a cafe or in the next cubicle or across the breakfast table and say, "Did you hear about this?" Email: megan.doherty@canberratimes.com.au
