The experience and positive results obtained at 2018 with the first Accessible Balloon Festival of Segovia motivated the celebration of a second edition in July of this year. During this festival they have been able to witness competition flights, solidarity selfies, paramotor exhibitions, workshops, music, light and sound shows with balloons, and other activities. The initiative has shown that Segovia is one of the cities in Spain with more balloon flights per year, and that this resource can be and is accessible to all people.
During the celebration of the two festivals a lot of importance has been given to accessibility, since since March of 2017 the province has the first accessible balloon in Castilla y León, sponsored by the City Council of Segovia, and being the operator of the same company “ Always in the clouds. "
"Always in the clouds", which promotes the exhibition "Segovia, the city of balloons", was founded in Madrid in December of 2009. It is dedicated to the realization of balloon rides, advertising or aerial filming with hot air balloons.
With the aim of delving into the history of the aerostation, and knowing about the experience of balloon pilots, a talk was organized around the exhibition on Friday December 20 at 18: 00 hours in the Young House It will offer some information about the conquest of the heavens and how the hot air balloon was gaining adherents in the eighteenth century.
