Admission is FREE for the 24th annual Balloon Fest. This is a two day event on Friday, June 7 and Saturday, June 8 beginning at 6:30 a.m. Come early for this Art City Days tradition and watch the colorful hot air balloons launch from the grass field at Cherry Creek Elementary (484 S 200 E). Balloon Fest has twelve balloons scheduled for 2019, which will include 3 tethered balloons for free rides! Balloon Fest also features the Orville Anderson Cup Competition where balloon pilots compete to show off their skills.
Spectators are encouraged to bring blankets and breakfast to sit and eat while watching the balloons fill up and lift off. Along with the excitement of experiencing the balloons up close and personal, prizes and candy are tossed out as each balloon launches. There will be free face painting for the kids and fun for all ages! This is a great event for the community and everyone is encouraged to participate in the fun. Bring a camera to take advantage of some great photo opportunities!
A special thanks to the WW Clyde Companies for their sponsorship of this free event.
