25 Aug Oswestry Balloon Carnival 2019
Our RICOH imagine.change. special shape cube hot air balloon travelled North for the Oswestry Balloon Carnival accompanied by Duma the Longleat Cheetah, Adelaide the Longleat Koala and the Exclusive Ballooning Events London skyline balloon.
The weekend was very successful with perfect flying conditions allowing for activity in every slot. There was even a bonus press launch on the Thursday evening which RICOH flew for over an hour in followed by Adelaide and the London Skyline Balloon.
Flying on the Saturday morning to being the only balloon tethering in the afternoon for the crowds before an evening mass launch, RICOH had a busy but impressive day. That evening RICOH impressed the crowd by lighting up the night sky in that evening’s night glow. RICOH also had a visit from the Town Mayor and Mayoress with a photo opportunity attracting the local press.
Sunday morning our London Skyline balloon was the first to launch followed by RICOH and Adelaide the Longleat Koala.
The Oswestry Balloon Carnival is organised and ran by Lindstrand Technologies Ltd, a UK hot air balloon manufacturer and Nightingale Hospice which is held in Cae Glass Park in the centre of town. The Carnival was a huge success attracting thousands of spectators.
