Long Description:
[DE]
Die BALLOON FIESTA, das sind vier ereignisreiche Tage mit beeindruckenden Massenstarts der Heißluftballone, Ballonglühen, Brennerparaden, spannenden Darbietungen von Luftakrobaten und vielen anderen Aktionen. Mehr als 40 Ballone und Luftschiffe sorgen früh und abends für ein buntes Farbspektakel am Himmel über Leipzig.

Nach Sonnenuntergang wird es romantisch. Dann versammeln sich die sanften Riesen am Boden zum Ballonglühen. Nach einer ausgefeilten Choreografie scheinen sie miteinander zu tanzen.

The BALLOON FIESTA, that's four eventful days with impressive mass launches of hot air balloons, balloon glow, torch parades, exciting performances by acrobats and many other actions. More than 40 balloons and airships provide morning and evening for a colorful spectacle of color in the sky over Leipzig.

After sunset, it is romantic. Then the gentle giants congregate at the bottom of the balloon glow. After an elaborate choreography, they seem to dance together.
