What You Need To Know

Once the balloons are inflated, we will invite you to come and walk among the baskets.  Meet the pilots, take close up pictures, and ask questions. Times are approximate and depend on weather and safety conditions.  The pilots will make every effort to perform the glow.  If conditions do not allow for the balloons to inflate and glow, the pilots will perform a “Ring Of Fire”. ​
