Armenia planning int'l hot air balloon fest to celebrate Yerevan's birthday

PanARMENIAN.Net - In the framework of events marking the 2799th anniversary of Yerevan's foundation, the city hall and Skyball are organizing an international hot air balloon festival, titled 'Discover Armenia from Above', on October 14-17.

Hot air balloons will arrive from all over the world to sail through the sky and create a dreamlike atmosphere in the Armenian capital.

In a conversation with PanARMENIAN.Net Skyball representative Nairi Barseghyan said the festival will open at the Republic Square in downtown Yerevan on October 14.

The next day, the hot air balloons will, again, start from the square and fly over the city.

On the last day, the festival will move to Garni, where an ancient pagan temple is situated, and is set to return to the capital for a closing ceremony.

According to Barseghyan, no tickets will be sold, and only media representatives and those winning passes through a draw will have the chance to fly.
