0

York Balloon Fiesta is back! After a cracking first year, it’s coming back, bigger and better than ever. Little Vikings are delighted to be working in partnership with York Balloon Fiesta to bring some fun children’s activities to the weekend.

Head to the big white tent on Saturday 29th and Sunday 30th September 2018 (12 noon to 4pm) and join in a drop-in session with one of the lovely businesses taking part. More details will follow, but here’s an idea of who you can catch:

Saturday 29th September (12pm – 4pm)

  • All afternoon: Pop-up science with the National Railway Museum
  • All afternoon: Fun activities with Puddle Ducks
  • 12 noon: Balloon modelling with Rainbow Elf Entertainments: Here at Rainbow Elf Entertainments I have been balloon twisting for 3 and a half years and have often found children and adults alike wanting to know just how I can handle the balloons so effortlessly. Well I may not be able to teach you to fly a balloon, but I can teach you how to shape them! At my balloon modelling workshop for absolute beginners you will learn the simple art of balloonology from inflation to twisting your own sausage dog (to name and take home). Learning the basics will allow you to explore the creative world of balloonology with confidence! Not sure about being hands on? Not to worry, anyone is welcome to watch and volunteers to demonstrations may come away with their own free balloon!
  • 1 pm: Inspiring workshops with Ingenues: Get ready for takeoff! To celebrate York balloon fiesta we are going to be learning all about flight. We will be doing experiments to understand how aeroplanes and hot air balloons work as well as checking out some of the brilliant people who have piloted them. You will get to take part in lots of interactive activities to take home with you. Join us in the Little Vikings tent at York Balloon Fiesta. This is suitable for children over the age of 4.
  • 2 pm: French fun for little ones with Kidslingo York
  • 3pm: Drama and storytelling with Hoglets
  • Outside at various times: Rugby for little ones with Rugbytots and cricket for kids with Little Cricket
