At this point, we're all in need of some good news, whether that means a free burger or live-streaming some super-cute baby goats. But if there's one thing that's sure to put a smile on your face, it's the colorful balloon installations that seems to be taking over cities across the United States. It all started Easter weekend as a means to spread cheer and well wishes to neighbors and health workers. The installations have lived on via social media, and we rounded up our favorites from across the U.S. as a way to bring some joy to your day. 

We'll start off with this gorgeous rainbow in Chicago 

Then move on to this much-needed spot of color in Brooklyn 

This warm-hued installation is a real mood lift
