The Hi-flyer helium balloon tourist attraction on Torquay seafront is to be spruced up with a clean and decorated with an English Riviera logo and ‘tickling stick’ palm tree, according to thisissouthdevon.
The balloon, which has inspired plenty of hot air in the form of heated debate, will be deflated at the end of October, with £20,000 of helium gas being vented off.
Apparently, it will take three months to put the logo on the balloon because it each panel of the balloon will have to be cleaned before the logo can be fixed to it [why does it take three months to clean a balloon?]
A Torbay Council spokesman said: “We understand the logo will be displayed alongside other sponsorship logos.”
