On 11 March Canberra Balloon Spectacular @ Enlighten Festival lifts off. Marvel at hot air balloons floating across the city over nine days from 11 – 19 March, as the Canberra skyline turns into a sea of colour and movement.
View a special Pride Flight on the opening morning (11 March) where balloons will fly with LGTBIQA+ flags.
The balloons are scheduled to fly daily, weather permitting. Daily announcements if balloons will launch and fly are made at 6.15am and published on enlightencanberra.com and via the Enlighten Festival and EventsACT social channels.
Balloons will inflate from 6.15 am and launch around 7am each morning from Patrick White Lawns, weather permitting. For those who have braved the dawn start there’s a hot breakfast to enjoy as the balloons lift off and drift across the dawn sky. Be sure to check out the balloons throughout the morning with great views around the lake and from the Arboretum.
When: 11-19 March. From 6.15am Where: Patrick White Lawns, National Triangle Cost: Free for spectators.
