TURA and the paper balloons




It is now more than 10 years that he has been joining us at the Coupe Icare and amazing us with paper balloons...

A few bits of silk paper, a cotton wick soaked in paraffin and a breath of wind ….... That is all that is needed for Tura and his baloeiros friends to astound us and wake up the child within.

With him, the sky grows colors and lights up,  smiles spread across faces, eyes sparkle with happiness.

It is a simple and fleeting moment, full of magic and poetry, and so full of emotion !

Meet Tura and his baloerios friends...
- Friday, Saturday and Sunday from 10am to 12pm on the Southern take-off zone, and learn the art of making brazilian balloons,
- Every evening, on the Southern take-off zone, during the interlude of the films festival
- During the various schedules throughout the Coupe Icare, solar balloons will either be released or not
