BALLOONS WILL LAUNCH
Lifting Spirits Around the World – October 3 & 4
On October 3 and 4, 2020, many hot air balloon pilots will join together as a symbol of thanks to frontline and essential workers, with a balloon launch called Lifting Spirits Around the World. Independent balloonists from around the world will take flight on these two days, flooding social media with pictures and videos of their flights. Balloons put smiles on the faces of young and old and with the postponement of the 49th Albuquerque International Balloon Fiesta, we applaud the efforts of those pilots planning and participating in Lifting Spirits Around the World.
