Lorraine Mondial Air Ballons - Tourisme en Lorraine

from 22/07/2011 to 31/07/2011
From July 22nd to July 31th 2011, the twelfth edition of the biggest international hot air balloons gathering of the world will be held at Chambley Planet' Air (Meurthe & Moselle - Lorraine - France).
A reputation confirmed in 2009 by holding the record of the “greatest” in-line mass ascent in the world. Three thousand pilots and crews, sixty nations coming from seven continents, are awaited.
Every odd year since 1989, the event, which gathers way beyond the hot air balloons, the gas balloons and all flying machines, became an irresistible meeting. It attracts more than four hundred thousand visitors in ten days and nearly 175 partners.
In nearly 500 acres, mornings and evenings, the multicolored bubbles will take-off. An astonishing air ballet!
In addition to these massive takes-off, balloon pilots will dispute five high level competitions, but also the New Century Cup (gas balloon), the night glow, without forgetting special shapes for kids and grown-ups.
On the ground, in the four villages specially implemented for the occasion, visitors will have the possibility to discover exhibitions, workshops and animations turned around aeronautics, space and astronomy. The whole things in three dimensions : virtual, dynamic and static. Like the past years, entrance and parking are free for public thanks to the sponsors.
A big spotlight for this region which is bordering Germany, Belgium and Luxembourg, in the heart of the Lorraine’s nature park.

Light Art 1st glow

Manfred Kielnhofer

In cooperation with Light Art Biennial from Austria, Ptuj will host light objects by artists such as 
Manfred Kielnhofer, Christoph Luckeneder, Mounty R. P. Zentara and Alexandre Murucci. We 
have also invited Korean artist Jeongmoon Choi to exhibit her light drawings.
Installations by Art Stays' artists (Dušan Fišer) will join and complement the visiting works of art.
The Light Art Project is a conceptual by Jernej Forbici upgrade of Art Stays projects from 2005,
when the festival carried the name Light Please. The aim is to awaken life in the sleepy oldest
Slovenian town. Each night, Ptuj will shine under the glow of the light installations and take a 
peek into a brighter future.
