The main highlight for this year’s event includes Mass Ascension in the morning from 7 am to 8 am daily and a Night Glow Show where visitors will get a chance to witness hot air balloons appearing like huge lanterns, dancing in the sky.

Not to forget, there will also be a spectacular fireworks display taking place on Saturday and Sunday from 8.45 pm to 9.30 pm.

Entrance is free! But for an intimate, once in a lifetime experience, visitors are encouraged to purchase Balloon Zone entrance tickets at https://www.myballoonfiesta.com/thetickets to obtain Launching Field and Night Glow Show access which allows visitors to be up-close and personal with the balloons.

Aside from these activities, Tethered Hot Air Balloon Rides are also available for purchase. While for the more adventurous ones, a free-flying hot air balloon ride is also made available during the Fiesta via the MyBalloon Adventure.

We are so excited! How about you?
