BALLOON LAUNCH TIME:
AT SUNRISE, weather permitting. (It's an early morning sport.) Balloons do not fly in the middle of the day because the wind picks up, but there are plenty of activities for your family to enjoy all day long!
Meet your neighbors, have fun supporting the most popular event in the Valley, and feel good about your contribution!!
