A Herculean task
For once, it can be said that in 2021, most of the assembly of the four BallonVille which make up the big balloon city on the Chambley aerodrome was done under torrential rain. Without any exaggeration, it was as if we were in the middle of November, not preparing for a summer festival. It took a lot of courage to the teams (nearly fifty) to pull the tens of kilometres of cables, pipes, 3.000 m2 of tents and marquees and barriers to be aligned so that the balloon village would look like the plans that had been skilfully prepared for several months. On Friday, the sun came back timidly, then flooded the field, warming it up and the team. Is it summer already?
