Description

What to know before you get on the road to Carolina BalloonFest!


In an effort to be as open as possible, the Carolina BalloonFest feels compelled to point out that while the general weather report for the weekend is very good, the wind forecast may present challenges for us in terms of balloon launches, especially on Friday and Saturday. Of course, wind and weather conditions can change rapidly. Carolina BalloonFest will do everything within our means to have as many scheduled launches as possible. However, our patrons must understand that we have no control over the weather and that the safety of our pilots, their passengers and our patrons is our primary concern.

CHILDREN 12 AND UNDER FREE ADMISSION

READ prepaid tickets to confirm your parking lot number and address.

Be on time for Launch Time! Plan to PARK by 1 PM. On time festival entry is not guaranteed to guests who attempt to park later than 1:30 PM on Saturday and Sunday due to high traffic volumes on single lane roads leading to our festival location.

HOT AIR BALLOON FLIGHTS / ACTIVITIES ARE WEATHER DEPENDENT. All ballooning activities including static displays, tethered rides and balloon flights are weather dependent. The decision to inflate hot air balloons is made just prior to a scheduled ballooning activity.
