One of Môssieur Ballon\'s proudest accomplishments in 2013 was a Robin Hood-themed performance in Montpellier. The balloon mural would change bit by bit every morning, while afternoons were devoted to children\'s shows taking place arround the mural.

The second half-day of the Robin Hood balloon performance was spent making a second tree and part of the ground in the glade between the trees. The idea was to imitate the wooded environment where we are used to picturing Robin Hood.
