Balloons ARE back!

The balloons are back in the sky! After a long break due to winter and quarantine, Vilnius is ready to color the sky with the hot air balloons again. Often dubbed balloon capital, the city will host probably the first international championship worldwide in 2020. While most of the national and international competition were cancelled or postponed, Lithuanian ballonists are ready to boost up their fighting spirit and inflate the balloons not only for sightseeing from above but also for competing!

On June 11-14, Lithuanian capital hosts Vilnius open hot air balloon championship. More than 20 pilots from Lithuania and Latvia will compete. Weather permitting, they will take of five times – just after the sunrise and before the sunset. Almost 15 other pilots will participate in fiesta, in other words, they will fly without a goal to win.

Vilnius showed the whole world how to open a huge outdoor cafe even during the quarantine, now it’s time to reach the sky! Soft landings for everyone!
