The Balloons Are Back!!!

For the second year running our fantastic Roman balloons will float through the Eternal City on January 1st!

Centurion Balloon

The fearless and feared Centurion in his iconic Roman legionnaire’s uniform flies above crowds every-ready to form the famous impenetrable turtle battle formation to protect Rome from any marauding barbarians.

Balloon handlers today are students and supporters of Menomonee Falls High School Symphonic Orchestra from Menomonee Falls, Wisconsin, USA.

Gladiator Balloon

Brandishing his trident, shield and stern face, our Gladiator is always on the alert and ready to fight for his life and entertain the crowds. Will Ceaser give a closed fist or open hand to fight another day?
