Two Ways To Experience

From The Air | From the Ground

Fly on a Balloon

Book a ticket for a ride on one of the festival balloons and lift off with the dozens of balloons that will dot the Lancaster County horizon. Morning and evening flights available Friday-Sunday.

Fun on the Ground

Not flying in a balloon? No problem! With a general admission ticket you can watch the majestic scene of mass balloon launch and balloon glows while enjoying lots of food and entertainment.
