The ACT Government has been running the Balloon event since 2008.
The event runs each day of the Canberra Festival, which celebrates Canberra's birthday.
I propose we head down on the Friday morning if possible. Considering driving down and stopping off at a B&B on the way. To get to Canberra on Sat. With the thought of coming back Monday. Its about 13 hour drive or possibly a flight if money permits at the time.
