Maybe these answers will help!

General admission includes admission into the event, music, a FREE Kids Zone with bounce houses & inflatable games, access to and candy stations at balloons, an opportunity to get pictures with the Easter Bunny and much more!

Yes, general admission tickets are available for purchase at each entrance gate.

No. The event is an evening glow, meaning all the balloons remain on the ground during the event allowing guests to get up close and personal with these gentle giants. Each hot air balloons serves as a candy station for the kids!

The balloons begin to inflate at sunset and glow as long as their fuel allows. This means balloons are usually up from about 7:00 PM to approximately 8:45 PM, conditional on weather.
