The event falls into the ‘mass gathering’ criteria as a free event that is non ticketed with attendees numbering over 1000 and therefore feel it is the right thing to do for the community.
Balloons over Waikato are extremely disappointed not to be able to deliver this amazing community event to the City and the region, but strongly support all measures put in place by the Ministry of Health and government to minimise the impact of Covid-19 on New Zealand.
The good news is, our balloons are here, the pilots are here, so balloons will be taking to the skies every morning from Tuesday to Saturday. Instead of coming to Innes Common, enjoy our Carnival of Colour out your window wherever you may be over the week.
Keep looking up, balloons will still be filling the skies of Hamilton this week
