YESSENTUKI, Stavropol territory, September 2 (Itar-Tass) —— The 14th international ballooning festival opened in Pyatigorsk on Sunday. Six multicolored balloons were launched simultaneously from Mount Mashuk.

About a dozen of best Russian crews take part in the festival, the organizers said. The participants will be using GLONASS/GPS navigation systems for the first time. Traditionally, the festival ends Russian ballooning competitions and gathers the best crews of the year.

The balloons will fly over Yessentuki, Pyatigorsk, Kislovodsk, Lermontov and Zheleznovodsk. There will be some events in the gorges near Kislovodsk and Mounts Beshtau, Zheleznaya, Razvalka, Medovaya and Sheludivaya. The winner will get a cup and the traditional gold diamond ring with the festival logo.
