Betanzos balloon took of before 70,000 people one year more

Betanzos welcomed the climb of the biggest paper air balloon in the world yesterday.

One more year, the balloon that the Pitas pamperingly make during the previous months to the Saint Rochs day rose over the sky of Betanzos, giving the most emotional touch to the day devoted to the local patron saint. As usually, thousands of people from all around the region crowded together for hours at the García Hermanos Square to get the best place to attend the climb of the air balloon.

Once blown up by the artisanal procedure of setting fire to a rye straw, the machine raised over the town along with the enthusiasm of the people. When it began to spread out (due to the hot air coming in), the drawings that were made this year could be seen; as the one where the new president of the autonomous government of Galicia, Alberto Núñez Feijoo, was on a vehicle. As the balloon gained height, the audience burst into applause to reward their assistants and Pitas work, who have managed to turn this event in one of the most well-known events of the Galician Summer.
