A ballooning festival is always an event that captures the public's attention. Not only by the colours an dimensions of the elements involved, but also its uncommonness, everything gets in place to fire people's curiosity.
Contrarily to the idea of danger often associated with this activity, truth is that it is a very safe sport. Its safety rules are very demanding, both in technical aspects of the equipments, but also about the competence of the pilots and the mandatory observance of proper weather conditions.
