Ballooning Fiesta

2017 was AMAZING

Ballooning Fiesta

The Balloon Fiesta last weekend that kicked of the National Ballooning Championships for this year was INCREDIBLE! I was lucky enough to be asked by the Shire of Northam to come and MC the event I was amazed by just how breath taking the sight really was. We had awesome live music and the main act Daren Reid and Soul Groove were just phenomenal, he was out in the crowd for pretty much his entire set running around and through people, dancing with all the kids and just  gave an explosive and engaging performance. Thousands of people trickled in, able to take a gander at the Balloon Discovery zone, take a look at the market stalls and rides and indulge in the many food vans that were there on the night. Ruth Wilsons who is a Northam local, volunteer and first recipient in having a national ballooning title under her belt  helped to co-ordinate the Balloon glow that start promptly at 7:30pm, was lovely to have a chat on air about it with her this week also :)
