Balloon Rides

Floating high above the crowd....tethered rides will be available this year.  A tethered ride is when the balloon lifts off the ground but does not launch and fly away.  Sales will be offered on a first come first serve basis and will be flown weather permitting and at the individual pilot's discretion.

If you are pregnant, recently released from the hospital, have current broken bones or casts you will not be able to qualify to purchase a ride. Passengers below the age of 18 must have parent permission or the parent must fly with them. All passengers will be required to sign a release form provided by the Festival tethered ride provider.

Tickets only available for purchase onsite - Adults $20 and Children 10 and older $15.  Cash transactions only.
