Long Beach, CA (PRWEB) July 23, 2010
The Red Bull Flugtag has come back to American shores for more airborne fun. The event, which invites inventors with a penchant for adrenaline to design unorthodox flying machines, takes place on August 21, 2010. Bringing thousands of spectators to Rainbow Harbor in Long Beach, Flugtag is an experience not to be missed, and Renaissance Hotel Long Beach, CA, offers nearby affordable accommodations. If attendees book their rooms now, they can receive a special advance purchase leisure rate of only $99 per night, which offers an incredible value for a downtown Long Beach hotel.
Flugtag, which means “flying day” in German, started in Vienna, Austria almost twenty years ago; however, little flying actually takes place during the competition, since participants are judged on showmanship, design creativity, and flight distance. Designs in the past have included flying tacos, Snoopy and Winnebagos with wings, all of which are pushed off a 30-foot high platform and eventually crash into the water. The Long Beach Flugtag event promises many new, outlandish flying machines sure to please the crowd. For more information visit http://www.redbullflugtagusa.com/LongBeach2010
