? UNFORTUNATELY, THIS EVENT HAS BEEN POSTPONED UNTIL JUNE 2019 ?
London’s Hot Air Balloon Regatta, organised by Exclusive Ballooning, is set to take place this weekend, meaning up to fifty big balloons will float over the city.
Or so we hope. The regatta was originally scheduled to happen in June, and then delayed and delayed and delayed by weather conditions. So finally, this Sunday, November 25, we’re getting another chance to see a sky full of spectacular balloons – so keep your fingers crossed that it actually happens this time*!
Up to fifty balloons take to the skies each year, while the event raises funds and awareness for the Lord Mayor’s Appeal. The whole thing is due to kick off at around 7:30am, so set an alarm if you’re hoping to catch them. Unfortunately, Battersea Park, which is where they’ll be launching from, will be closed to the public for safety reasons. But you might spot them gliding over Tower Bridge, Buckingham Palace and the London Eye, so keep your eyes peeled.
For more information, head to the Balloon Regatta’s website.
*there’s a final standby date set for December 2 if things don’t work out this week.
