The Canberra Festival Balloon Spectacular, held over nine days from Saturday 6 until Sunday 14 March, will see over giant hot air balloons launched from the forecourt of Old Parliament House each morning.
The Balloon Spectacular has become an institution in the Canberra events calendar, and this year it is again guaranteed to provide an awe inspiring early morning sight. Spectators are sure to enjoy watching the balloons slowly expand to reveal their shape, before passing smoothly into the dawn sky
However, the action won’t just be in the air. With entertainment, activities and a delicious breakfast courtesy of the Belconnen Lions Club on offer, the event is a perfect outing for the whole family each morning of the Canberra Festival.
Pilots will begin laying out and inflating their balloons from 6.15am each morning. So get up early and be sure not to miss any of the action on the ground or in the air at this year’s Balloon Spectacular.
When: Saturday 6 - Sunday 14 March 2010
Time: Every morning from 6.30am
