Long Description:
In 2012 154.000 visitors and 206 teams from 11 nations attend the 22nd ballon festival at Warstein. During one week they managed 1.458 starts. One group of about 100 ballons started in the morning and another 150 in the evenig, which was finished by a "Night-Glow" af about 30 balloons with music and fireworks.
The special formed balloons are the attraction: Sunflower, Action-Man, Brandenburger Tor, Coca-Cola bottle, beer glasses, cat, space station, Orient Express and Woody Woodpecker are some examples I have seen.
