49 nations, 1,207 pilots and 983 balloons were recorded during ten days, representing an average of 383 balloons for each flight. On Saturday 3th (morning), 10 mass ascents have been successful for 9 canceled due to bad weather. After two years of waiting (the event takes place every two years, the last week of July and the first of August), the pilots met for this international appointment in a festive and enthusiastic atmosphere that lasts ten days. For this 13th edition, the slogan “Beyond the dream” was to meet expectations of all!
“If you stop dreaming, you die a little bit…”
