Balloon Fest Substitutions for 2013

August 15, 2013

Due to events which were beyond our control both the Rocket Man and the Mr. Scarecrow special shape balloons will not participate in this year’s Balloon Fest. We are excited to announce that the Space Shuttle and the flying Lighthouse balloons will replace them. Both of these balloons are from Pennsylvania and flown by our original special shape balloon pilots.

The Space Shuttle “Patriot” is 190’ tall and 115’ wide. The flying lighthouse “FlightHouse” is 115’ tall and 53 ‘wide. Gates open Friday Aug. 16 at 3pm, our first flight is scheduled Friday at 6 pm.
