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.
CineStar Outdoor Movie Company turns backyards and parks into open-air cinemas, supplying high-quality, widescreen movie screens for events ranging from weddings to block parties. The staff does more than just drop off a big screen at each customer's desired location: from the moment a customer calls, they get to work planning the event, setting up the screens—which can be prepped for live feeds playing local sports, UFC matches, or other Pay Per View events—and providing optional accompaniments such as popcorn, glow sticks, and even beanbags or couches. To ensure every event is a success, they help customers with licensing, promoting, and scheduling, and will even talk to neighbors to prep them for the event and gently explain why Movie Godzilla shouldn’t be feared, but Real Godzilla should be.
Since becoming the Double-A affiliate of the Texas Rangers in 2003, the RoughRiders have continually replenished the Big Leagues with some of baseball's brightest stars. The team's alumni list speaks for itself, and it also explains why the 'Riders contend for the postseason on an annual basis. From day one, Dr Pepper Ballpark has been the site of the team's many successes. It has frequently been recognized as one of Minor League Baseball's best parks, especially for its quirky features. For instance, both teams' bullpens are nestled in amongst the stands, meaning fans sit close enough to hear a relief pitcher's acceptance speech when he gets called into the game.
Founded in 2002, the Guns & Hoses Foundation of North Texas provides support and financial assistance to families of fallen firefighters and police officers who have lost their lives in the line of duty.

To raise funds throughout the year for such an expansive area, Guns & Hoses hosts numerous charitable events, including an annual boxing tournament, golf tournament, and football championship between competitors from the police and fire departments.
