The Family Day weekend offers fun for the whole family at Winterfest in Sylvan Lake. Ballooning is weather dependant so the pilots will assess the weather early that morning before we meet. If the weather looks good, we will meet at the Deerfoot Mall parking lot and will car pool out to Sylvan Lake. If no carpool is necessary then please just meet at the Humpty's in Sylvan Lake at 9:30 am. The pilots will assess the weather again. At that point we will either inflate the balloons and fly or we will eat breakfast and wait until the winds co-operate. There are several other activities taking place in Sylvan Lake during the Winterfest such as the Polar Bear Dip and fireworks later that evening. Dress warmly and bring your work gloves and your camera. Please check back to this site for any updates the night before and early that morning.
