Lodge Real Estate is pleased to announce the release of some exciting new balloons that will feature in the upcoming Balloons over Waikato event in Hamilton. Lodge is a proud sponsor of this event and is excited to introduce Robbie for Ronald McDonald House, the Resene In Love with Colour Lovebirds and The Alien Rocket!

Robbie for Ronald McDonald House was built in Spain in 2012, inspired by a real life boy named Robbie. It measures 40 metres tall and weighs a whopping 454 kilograms!

The Resene In Love with Colour Lovebirds was inspired by a Hot Air Balloon event in Thailand during their 2016 Valentine’s Day celebrations, and is a heart shaped balloon standing 19.8 metres tall and 22.8 metres wide.

The Alien Rocket was built by pilot Alain Bard to honour his childhood dream of becoming an astronaut. Hailing from Canada, Bard is very excited to bring his 29 metre tall creation to New Zealand this March.

Make sure you come along to the Balloons over Waikato to see these amazing balloons for yourself! Wednesday 22nd – Sunday 26th March 2017 at Innes Common, Hamilton Lake and The University of Waikato.
