The Balloons for Brighter Futures race is a great fun 7day computer simulation race where everything is real except the balloon. 100% ENVIRONMENTALLY FRIENDLY Unlike a traditional latex balloon race, where the balloon can cause death or serious injury to wildlife and farm animals, the Brighter Futures Jersey balloon race is 100% environmental and litter abuse friendly! Plus, with no actual balloon, string or label, and no helium gas either, it’s climate change positive too. But it is just as unpredictable as a real race and just as competitive! Although sales take place now and ongoing until the virtual balloon race is ‘launched’ at 9pm on Thursday July 16, the actual prevailing weather conditions for the launch area on the day will be applied to ALL the balloons in the race equally. An advanced computer modelling programme using Google maps and weather data, will then ‘track’ how each balloon reacts to the weather conditions during the race. By following a link, you can track your balloon/s in real time 24/7.
