“It’s more than a family carnival. It will be the first time in all these editions that we will have the opportunity to complete the event as a carnival, including food, music, games and more. We thank the tourism department of Tamil Nadu for their support. Usually, events of this type, like balloon festivals, are held to promote tourism in the destination, such as the Albuquerque International Balloon Festival in the US. This will invite people to come out of the house and watch hot air balloons of different shapes fly up into the sky. Before, we used to have five or six balloons, but this year we have about 12 balloons. Pilots from various countries are visiting our state to fly these balloons,” he explained.
