Balloon Fly-In Competition
Both Saturday and Sunday mornings at 8:00AM, a group of balloons that launched from remote areas, will attempt to fly over the festival grounds. A target will be laid out on the launch field, and the pilots will compete by dropping bean bags on the target. The pilot that is closest to the target wins a prize. This is entertaining for our guests because they are able to view the balloons in flight, headed toward the park, and competing to reach the target.
