Spread out a picnic blanket and prepare for some quality neck-craning on July 18th, 19th, 20th and 21st this year at Ella Sharp Park. Weather permitting, you’ll get the chance to see as many as five launches over the three-day weekend. Morning and evening launches are scheduled for Friday and Saturday, in addition to a final morning launch on Sunday. You’ll watch the entire process of hot air balloon flight: trailer unpacking (they’re tiny!), inflation and eventually, lift-off. Listen to the roar of torches as pilots use colossal flames to control the balloon’s lift.
Throughout the event, come out the park and enjoy carnival rides, live entertainment, food vendors, Ella Sharp Museum, craft booths, the Kids Kingdom, a pilot meet and greet, and a car show. Be sure to stick around Friday and Saturday Evening for the Night Glow. For a full list of activities see our website: hotairjubilee.com.
