Hot air balloon rides are a joke you are not up in the air for 3-5 minutes as stated.

The rides for children are for purchase with tickets only. The venue is really well-run. The food vendors ran-out of food, which is disappointing, but what we were able to get was high-quality and delicious! Be patient getting-in on a Saturday evening prior to the 'glow' as it is a one-lane road, but it moves reasonable quickly.

From Our Editors

Whether grounded or airborne, balloons dominate the festivities at Old Celina Park. On the ground, the vibrantly patterned balloons glow and undulate as propane burners pump them with hot air. These bright shapes slowly diminish to colorful specks in the sky as the balloons ascend, leaving the fairgrounds far behind.

With this canopy of colored dots overhead, the festival’s entertainment comes alive as musical acts such as the Emerald City Band performing on Friday and Eleven Hundred Springs performing on Saturday take the stage. Pristine cars and trucks made as early as the 1930s shine at the classic-car show, inflatables promote adrenaline rushes along with helicopter rides, human hamster balls, a 200 ft. zip line, a western show, more than 100 vendors, and carnival rides and dog adoptions in Adoption Alley tug on heartstrings. In the evening, when the balloons that have served as a backdrop all day finally land, each pilot contributes to the balloon glow, punctuating the dusk with jets of flame from their burners to illuminate their vessels.
