Enjoy the magic of the first Villages Balloon Festival: three days and nights of entertainment and magical ballooning activities. Featuring more than 30 hot air balloons, this is a not-to-be-missed experience, great for families, adventurers and photographers.
Weather permitting**, tethered balloon rides will be available for attendees on the main balloon field. Rides will last approximately 5 minutes. Average rides will take you 30-40 feet off of the ground. The charge for tethered rides is $15 adults, $5 children under 12. No unaccompanied children are allowed in balloons. Any untethered balloon rides must be booked directly with the pilots and are not held in conjunction with The Villages Balloon Festival.
A free Kids Zone will feature games, activities and a special appearance by the Gentle Carousel miniature horses on Saturday. Gourmet Food trucks offer up tasty temptations on “Fly Me To The Food” alley, and wine and beer will be sold at “Bottoms Up Boulevard”.
