We will host 20 colorful, enormous hot air balloons at this event and there is nothing more beautiful than to see these multicolored balloons ascend into the sky at dusk. Another popular event of the Balloon Fest is the Night Glow. Following each evening’s launch the balloons return to the festival to conduct a Night Glow. At this event, the balloons are tethered to the ground and they use their propane heaters to light up the multicolored balloons synchronized to music. It is one of the most fascinating sites imaginable. Tethered balloon rides will be available throughout the event at a nominal cost. Live music will take place on Friday and Saturday evening. Food vendors will be present to entice the taste buds, as well as a few other exciting events including Kiwanis Idol, a cornhole tournament, chili cook-off and our annual Health & Safety Family FUN! Fair.
