The sky of the 2017 Yucatán Xmatkuil Fair 2017 light up with the Fiesta del Globo, a family event that organizers expect to attract some 10,000 people.
At a press conference held at the Salón Internacional in the fairgrounds, the organizers announced that the hot-air balloon exhibition will be held at the Centro de Espectáculos Montejo, part of the fair’s facilities.
It will consist of a light and sound show with four colorful balloons and two shows, at 6:30 p.m. and 10 p.m. on Saturday, Dec. 2.
People can ride in the balloon, which will be tethered to the ground but allowed to rise.
Presale admission tickets are 50 pesos, and anchored flights are 250 pesos.
