In “BallonVille Public”, discover the (im)possible and (in)conceivable activities! You could reach this area by the village “St-Julien-lès-Gorze”, to arrive at the car parks which go to the boulevard Antoine de Saint-Exupéry.
From the entrance on the side of Hangar Balloon, near the central Information Booth, the Village of Tourism presents the wealth of the region. You have to visit the Aéromusée Pilâtre de Rozier, the history of the base and the one of ballooning, with its shop of “balloon” products (goodies, caps, t-shirts, sweatshirts and more) to the LMAB® effigy.
Along the boulevard, we find the Village of Exhibitors (local producers, artisans and merchants). On the esplanade, the Leisure Area to spend good time. At the heart of BallonVille Public, the Entertainment Stage, with radio of the site “Good Morning Chambley”, allows every day to win balloon flights. Going on the boulevard, you could reach the “Air Workshops” from astronomy to aerospace through aviation. Children can build little balloons, water rockets and learn the secrets of weather on the Weather Area with “Météo Lor’” and “Air Lorraine”, Astronomy Area with “CIACANE”, the Aerophoto, the Garden of the Wind, and the “selfie” stands.
Another point of attraction, the Village of Sport with the Regional Olympic Sports Committee (CROS) of Lorraine and the Directorate of Sports (of the Lorraine region), you can learn about athletics, duathlon (running and bike), climbing, roller skate, and handball.
Among the six hangars (along the boulevard), the Interfederal Regional Committee of Air Sports (CRISA) offers an exhibition of flying machines in the Hangar Glider. The bravest people can enter “in the belly of a balloon” and follow the ballet of the remote-controlled model balloons with “Mini Ball Passion”. Also find the museum of air photography in the Hangar Helicopter and an exhibition of microlights in the Hangar Microlight.
The entertainment starts at 4 pm on Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Fridays. At 11 am on Wednesday (Children’s Day). And at 2 pm on Saturdays and Sundays. Each night, an evening is offered: astronomy, model balloons takeoffs, and the “Night Line” (swelling of balloons).
