Saban’s Power Rangers participated in the recent Bristol International Balloon Fiesta.

As one of the largest balloon festivals in the world, an estimated 500,000 spectators were in attendance and watching as more than 100 hot air balloons took to the skies during the four-day celebration.

Saban’s Power Rangers debuted two new Mighty Morphin Power Rangers balloons at the festival’s Night Glow event. As the only brand with two balloons featured in the event, the Power Rangers balloons were designed in the likeness of the iconic Red and Pink Mighty Morphin Power Rangers helmets.

Visitors were also able to watch the Power Rangers balloon teams prep, inflate, launch and land the Powered Up balloons throughout the remaining three days of the event.

Gustavo Antonioni, managing director consumer products EMEA at Saban Brands, commented: “The Bristol International Balloon Fiesta is a weekend of non-stop family fun, which is a perfect fit for Saban’s Power Rangers brand. The Mighty Morphin Power Rangers are a pop-culture phenomenon and fans of all ages loved seeing the larger-than-life Red and Pink Ranger balloons flying high in the sky.”
