Grand Est Mondial Air Ballons 2021
From July 23 to August 1, 2021
The pilots’ Parade
Surrounded by music and in a festive and colorful atmosphere, the pilots greet the spectators before entering the take-off area and deploying their balloons.
Every day before the evening flight
Every day, morning and evening, several hundred hot-air balloons take to the air to offer an extraordinary show to the visitors of the Grand Est Mondial Air Ballons.
Every day, morning and evening
A magical moment for the whole family: the balloons line up in the night and their envelopes light up thanks to the flames of their burners. A festival of colored bubbles to brighten your evening at #GEMAB.
Wednesday July 28
Pilots line up their baskets on the take-off area and activate their burners to the rhythm of the music. The evening flight is cancelled? Do not worry, you won’t leave without a good view!
If, unluckily, it does not fly!
Just like a flea market, the pilots set up their stands at the entrance of the Passage des Pilotes. Pins, caps, jackets, aeronautical material… A great opportunity to make good deals!
