Give dad a gift he will never for­get!

Seaway News - - NEWS -

An­other neck­tie, more golf balls and socks... yes, the age old ques­tion – what to buy dad for Fa­ther’s Day? Why not look to the skies and think of some­thing en­tirely dif­fer­ent this year; buy him a hot air bal­loon flight!

Kins­men Corn­wall Lift-Off pro­vides the op­por­tu­nity for the pub­lic to pur­chase a bal­loon flight from Lamoureux Park. “ There is so much ex­cite­ment at the launch field that it is to­tally con­ta­gious,” com­mented Mary Mar­leau, Di­rec­tor of Hot Air Bal­loons. “ It is a very unique ex­pe­ri­ence and pro­vides a re­ally fan­tas­tic view of the en­tire city.”

A gift cer­tifi­cate is a unique gift idea to cel­e­brate Fa­ther’s Day or even a grad­u­a­tion. “ What a great way to share a spe­cial day with your dad or cel­e­brate with your son or daugh­ter as they em­bark on the next phase of their life,” added Chris Savard, Fes­ti­val Chair. “ We can al­most guar­an­tee it is a day and a shared ex­pe­ri­ence, that will be trea­sured for­ever”.

There are cur­rently six flight win­dows sched­uled for the 2010 fes­ti­val, be­gin­ning Thurs­day, July 8 in the evening un­til the morn­ing of Sun­day, July 13. Typ­i­cally, a flight over the city would fly be­tween 500’ - 1500’ al­though, depend­ing on the wind cur­rents, al­ti­tudes can be some­what higher.

Flights can be booked by con­tact­ing the Corn­wall & Se­away Val­ley Tourism Of­fice at ( 613) 938-4748 or 1800-937-4748. Flights are limited in quan­tity though, so don’t de­lay – call to­day!
