Let your Labor Day take flight! See hot air balloons soar, or take a tethered ride yourself in our picture-perfect farewell to Summer. The magic begins with the extraordinary Friday Night Balloon Glow, where dozens of balloons illuminate the night, and continues all weekend long. Spend your holiday engaging in a variety of family-friendly events, including live music, beach activities, and a Kids Zone, or escape for a quiet hike or bike along miles of winding trails. And photography buffs can get a crash course in evening shoots with the event “Mastering Night Photography.”

Please note that hot air ballooning is 100% dependent on calm winds and good weather. Balloon flights and tethered rides typically take place one hour after sunrise and two hours before sunset. The pilots will do their best to make flights and rides available while maintaining safety as the first priority.
