Complaints flow in for dodgy balloon festival organiser – Chiang Mai


These balloon festivals have been popping up around the country and work like a travelling carnival of hot air balloons. The festivals tend to involve little more than a music festival with some well-lit hot air balloons around the perimeter.

A similar show, the International Balloon Festival, was n Chiang Mai at the Cowboy Army Riding Club from March 2-4 this year. As far as the vendors who worked at the festival this year, it didn’t all go according to plan.

Vendors and staff at the Chiang Mai International Balloon Festival 2018 have filed a case with local Police claiming that the organiser has been dodging bills and not paying them what they are owed.
