What does my hot air balloon experience include?

When is the Canberra hot air balloon festival?
The Canberra Balloon Spectacular, formerly known as the Canberra Balloon Festival, occurs annually in March and takes place on the lawns of Old Parliament house. This fortnight-long visual phantasmagoria paints the sky in a rainbow spectrum of 50 or more vibrant hot air balloons, drifting amid a backdrop of breathtaking brilliance. Don’t be surprised to see Vincent Van Gogh’s head and a gigantic pair of dancing bumblebees floating high above the sky.
