Hot Air Balloon Flights are scheduled twice daily; early morning & late afternoon. All ballooning activities including static display, tethered rides and balloon flights are weather-dependent. The decision to inflate hot air balloons is made just prior to the scheduled ballooning activity. Due to limited entrance points into our festival, on Saturday, guests are encouraged to PARK by 1 PM to attend late afternoon launches. Saturday is our most popular festival day and the admissions booths will close when we reach maximum capacity. Tickets are non-refundable.
