London International Hot Air Balloon Festival

London International Hot Air Balloon Festival

There are several special-shaped balloons which regularly attend, including the Canadian Flag, Maple Leaf, Tyrone the T-Rex.

In addition to the balloon launches and rides, the festival features various other attractions including a full amusement park midway, concerts, and a night glow. Musical acts featured at the 2006 festival include Canadian artists Sloan and Mobile, as well as London band Bobnoxious.

In March 2008, Sundance Balloons announced that the 2008 edition of the event would not be held following several consecutive years of financial losses associated with the festival.
