BALLOON LAUNCHES

Balloons will launch each day throughout the weekend. The balloon launches are free to anyone to observe if they wake up early enough to meet the giant balloons as they float up into the sky.

Ballooning is an exciting but unpredictable activity that is dependent on the weather so launch times will vary! Please keep an eye out on social media pages as we approach the event and the day of for the most up-to-date info on balloon launches.

The balloon launches and balloons displays at the Night Glow events are subject to weather conditions. If wind (usually any faster than 7mph) or other weather conditions make it unsafe to launch or inflate the balloons, the events will be delayed or canceled. Thank you for understanding.
