My second posting of my visit to Twente Ballooning.

Twente Ballooning is a yearly event that can be seen as one of Hollands most spectacular events. Not only can hundreds of people enjoy the take-off of the hot-airballoons, but also there are several forms of aviation exposed and practiced (such as paragliding e.o.)

In 1985 'Rien Jurg Promotions' started organizing the BallonfiŽsta Brecklenkamp. It was the first balloonevent in Twente, (region in) Holland.
The first year there were 10 participating balloons and about a couple of hundred visitors. Through the years pilotes from all over the world signed up to join the fiŽsta, and also the public attention was growing.
In 1990 the fiŽsta continued in a new location, 'Het Hulsbeek' in Oldenzaal, and got the name 'Twente Ballooning'. Since then, for 4 days per year people are able to enjoy the colourful show of hot-air balloons.
