Friday we will have a music and Hot Air Balloon event in the evening with the Tainted Love.
Saturday will be a early morning event with a field full of balloons, a glow show, kids area, vendors and children's area.

Please note that most ballooning activities take place early in the morning. Once the balloons launch, there will be tethered balloons on site, but times for tethers are dependent on wind conditions.
