Arizona Balloon Classic 2015

It begins with a flurry of activity. Balloon operators prepare for lift-off, checking equipment and tossing ropes as spectators wander the grounds, observing the action. And then it reaches a new level: dozens of balloons take flight at once, filling the crisp dawn sky with brilliant blues, purples, oranges, and reds that rival the colors around them. The Arizona Balloon Classic's orbs then set off on an aerial hare-and-hound race, drawing cheers from below as onlookers look on.

For one weekend each year, visitors gather to snap pictures and watch the balloons inflate and lift off during the Classic ––a three-day festival celebrating hot-air balloon flight and culture. But the fun doesn't end with the descent to earth. After sunset the tethered balloons begin to glow and music plays, setting the scene for the ethereal Desert Glows portion of the festivities.

Customer Reviews

Ballon fests are always amazing.
Louise S. · February 16, 2016
There are fun games to do for kids but they cost extra. If they were included in the admission fee it would definitely be worth it for the experience otherwise a fun place to hang out, walk around tents and see vendors. The best part is seeing the balloons light up at the same time! Fun inexpensive time with family or friends!
