Aintree Hot Air Balloon Festival.
I envisaged two big events for Liverpool a few years ago….balloons over Liverpool and Formula One racing around the Strand, Lime Street and Dale Street area.
Now, taking place at Aintree Racecourse, thanks to the fantastic work of UK Hot Air Balloons in association with KC Promotions, a sensational display will hit the sky.
On Saturday July 20th and Sunday July 21st, this event will be the first of it’s kind in Merseyside and promises to be a spectacular celebration of hot air ballooning, with specially shaped designed balloons tethered to their moorings with roaring ignition flames leaping from their underneath.
Don’t miss the sculptured Churchill Insurance dog and the world’s largest Panasonic battery balloon!!!!! These are just awesome sights and if you view them at night, with the light display and laser show …it’s a knockout!!!
On the Saturday night the event will feature a spectacular ‘Glow Night’, where all the balloons light up to choreographed music, surrounded by mind boggling illuminating inflatables, culminating in an awesome firework display over the racecourse.
This is a sight to delight every child and adult and well worth a drive down to the racecourse.
Additional attractions will include, white knuckle thriller rides, helicopter rides, wild circus acts, the inflatable stage Roadshow with support acts and Lady Gaga tribute band; the usual craft and trade stands, with a massive array of licensed bar and food courts to quell the excitement of a warm, glorious weekend event that’s right on our doorstep.
