On the 800th anniversary of establishment of the city, Opole will transform for several days into Poland’s ballooning centre. From 18.04 to 21.04 everybody will have a chance to observe spectacular struggles in the sky of a few dozen balloon crews competing for the Opole City 800th Anniversary Cup, which is a part of the championship for Poland’s Baloon Cup.
Yet the best moments will be enjoyed during the Night Ballooning Show, which is the most stunning part of each balloon challenge event attracting crowds of people of all ages. The fire of a burner lights up a whole envelope so that a balloon is visible all around – this unusual effect is called a Chinese lantern or bulb.
You are going to be really having it!
