Up, Up, and Away in Thessaloniki

20-22 July 2016

Hot Air Balloon

That’s what the old song says: “Up, up and away, in my beautiful, my beautiful, balloon.” You’ll have a unique chance to make these words true for you on Thursday and Friday evening, the 21st and 22nd of July, when balloon rides will be on offer at the White Tower for 20 euros a pop.

The balloon will rise to a height of 50 meters for 15 minutes, giving you a rare view of the city from that height, and lest you think you might float away, it’ll be tethered to the ground the entire time with a long rope. So on those dates sponsors of the balloon ride will be asking passersby, “Would you like a ride in my beautiful balloon?”
