BALLOON FEST

LOCATION — 500 SOUTH 200 EAST

Admission is FREE for the 23rd annual Balloon Fest. This is a two-day event on Friday, June 9 and Saturday, June 10 beginning at 6:30 a.m. Come early for this Art City Days tradition and watch the colorful hot air balloons launch from the grass field at Cherry Creek Elementary (484 S 200 E). Balloon Fest includes the Orville Anderson Cup Competition where balloon pilots compete to show off their skills.

Spectators are encouraged to bring blankets and breakfast to sit and eat while watching the balloons fill up and lift off. Along with the excitement of experiencing the balloons up close and personal, prizes and candy are tossed out as each balloon launches. There will be free face painting for the kids and fun for all ages! This is a great event for the community and everyone is encouraged to participate in the fun. Bring a camera to take advantage of some great photo opportunities!
