The excuse this time?

Hot air balloon festival will go ahead, if for no other reason than a tribute to those who’ve died: Carterton Mayor

The mayor of Carterton says the region’s annual hot air balloon festival will go ahead, despite yesterday’s tragedy.

Police hope to release the names of all 11 victims of the crash this afternoon.

The four-day Balloons over Wairarapa festival is due to be held in March in Masterton.

The pilot of the balloon that crashed, Lance Hopping, was a safety officer for the festival.

[Would the festival be safer without a safety officer?]

Ron Mark says there’s some uncertainty among people in Carterton about whether the festival should go ahead.

But he says there’s an overwhelming expectation for the balloons to fly in March, if for no other reason than a tribute to those who’ve died. (Newstalk ZB)
