Festival hours: 3pm-9pm
Balloon launches are WEATHER PERMITTING. Please check our Facebook page during festival days for specific information. Balloons typically launch right after sunrise and right before sunset due to most predictable winds. Launch times are approximately 7:00am and 6:30pm on Saturday Aug 24, 2019.
\\BALLOON STATIC GLOW
The "glow" or "static glow" is when the balloons are inflated, but are tethered and stay on the ground. It is held after sunset and the pilots turn their burners on/off for a twinkling effect. This event is also WEATHER PERMITTING.
We are thankful for our sponsors and therefore grant balloon rides to them, at the "Soft Landings" level and above. We would love to add you as well. Please see Sponsor Brochure for more info. Or contact Dennis Hall to schedule a balloon experience on another day.
Parking is $10 per vehicle, per day. We have tried to improve parking for this year but please understand the complex is only so big and only holds so many vehicles. Come early to get a spot!
Schedule times are approximate and weather permitting. We aim to launch no later than 6:30PM in the evening, however, we could launch earlier or later, depending on the weather. Also, balloons start inflating well before the launch. In order to see the balloons filled and launched, we recommend everyone arrive by 5PM to ensure you don't miss out!
We would love to have you as a sponsor! Please see Sponsor Brochure for more info.
We would love to have you as a vendor! Please see Vendor Application for more info.
