Festival attendees are welcome to join in on fun in with Tethered Rides in the hot-air balloons, available for $10 per person. Reservations are not required for Tethered Rides, but are on a first come first served basis.

EVENT RECOMMENDATIONS:
Evening Festival Launches (Friday & Saturday Evening):

There is an admission fee ($10 for ages 12 and up). Friday Evening is recommended for families and large groups looking for the festival atmosphere. All kid’s activities, games, food, and beer/wine garden will open by 4:00pm on Friday and Saturday Evening. Be sure to bring your blankets to lay on!

**There is NO Sunday Evening Launch or festival activities.

Morning Quiet Launches (Saturday & Sunday Morning):

Free! This experience is quite different than the evening launches as there is no vendor activity. (Please plan on eating before or after the morning launches as there will be no food or beverages served on the field. We know kids can be hungry this early in the morning). Feel free to wake up before the sun and visit the fields to talk to pilots up close and personal- great for photos as well!

Reminder: No Pets or Coolers allowed at the event. Please do not leave pets in the car while at the festival. The weather is hot in July and no place for animals!
