Last night the 2016 COMBF kicked off with its annual Volunteer Training. Everything is in place. For a short video of last evening training session use this link: https://www.facebook.com/Crown-of-Maine-Balloon-Fest-57480139749/
Volunteers are ready. Pilots are arriving. Opening ceremony is tomorrow evening at 5:30 pm followed by the first mass ascension of all balloons. Weather problems is the only concern left. Should there be rain or winds above 5 mph the mass ascension maybe delayed or cancelled, however the street fair will go on. See you all at the fairground and then downtown.
Hey only 14 days and 11 hours to the start of the 2016 Crown of Maine alloon Fest. BE WATCHING FOR THE 2016 COMBF Bangor Daily News insert with the schedule of events.
Also if you are interested in booking a flight(s), please call soon to reserve space on one of the balloons. Flight reservations are going fast. Saturday morning flights are already full. Other days are filling fast.
We are excited about the “Tribirds” special shaped balloon will be coming from São Paulo, Brazil. Here a photo of all the balloons that are coming.
