This year mark’s 37 years of Ballooning in Plano, Texas. Join in the celebration at the InTouch Credit Union Plano Balloon Festival–a spectacular three day event.  It will be an action packed weekend of skydivers, hot air balloons and concerts. This weekend event offers something for everyone; entertainment on the KLUV main stage, Saturday evening’s spectacular fireworks show, kid activities, sky divers, an enormous variety of food to tempt your taste buds, merchandise and handmade products showcased, and of course the incredible hot air balloons.

On Friday and Saturday evening listen to the roar of burners being ignited and watch the special shapes and colorful balloons set against the backdrop of the dark night sky in the Balloon Glow. Tethered rides will be available this year.  A tethered ride is when the balloon lifts off the ground, hovers 20-30 feet above the ground for several minutes, but does not launch and fly away.  Tickets offered Friday PM, Saturday AM, Sunday AM and Sunday PM, weather permitting on a first come first served basis and at the individual pilot’s discretion.  Two balloons will be doing tethered rides, and both baskets can accommodate 4-6 people (depending on height and weight).  Adults $25, Children 6-12 years old $15. Cash only.
