Featuring over 25 balloons, a fireworks extravaganza, colorful balloons of all shapes and sizes, entertainment, concessions, and lots of fun. You’re guaranteed a good time as you experience the mirage of colors decorating the summer sky. Our Independence Day heritage is highlighted by fun family activities that will treat the family to an old-fashioned weekend of togetherness. There is a vast array of competitive events for pilots to test their balloon savvy in pursuit of valuable cash prizes. There is also the ever popular Balloon Glows at sunset to delight children and adults of all ages. Come watch the balloons flicker and dance in the evening twilight. We are excited to announce this year's Balloon Festival will feature special shape balloon all the way from England, Tall Steve the penguin!
