We hope to see lots of children at the opening ceremony, as has been the case in the past.
At 4.45pm balloons will be released to launch the 5 day festival.
Meet us on the town hall square at 4.15pm to prepare the messages.
The child whose message lands the furthest away wins a surprise...
The person who finds the balloon where it lands sends the message back to the child. When you receive it, just bring it to the Sarmentelles office.
The owner of the balloon that travelled the furthest will be rewarded.
