CANBERRA BALLOON SPECTACULAR
Saturday 10 - Sunday 18 March 2018
The Canberra Balloon Spectacular is considered to be one of the best and longest running hot air ballooning events in the world. Held over nine days, pilots begin laying out and inflating their balloons on the lawns of Old Parliament House from 6.15am each day before ascending into the sky and creating an exhilarating back drop to our national attractions.
The 2018 Canberra Balloon Spectacular will also include some special shape balloons from across the globe adding a sense of novelty to the stunning setting each day. Patrons will be treated to an experience of the senses with a flurry of colour, sound and movement. The atmosphere of the balloons is complemented by delicious hot breakfast available for purchase provided by the Belconnen Lions Club.
