I am posting this for my friend Patricia with Ground Zero Singles.

Join us for the 40th anniversary of the Carolina Balloon Fest in Statesville, NC. I know this event is a long time away but got so excited to announce it now so everyone knows about it in advance!! Some of us went last year and spent most of the day there and had a blast!! All day festival includes - Saturday balloon glow, live music entertainment, kids activities, market place for shopping, food venders, NC Wine and craft beer tasting and hot air balloon rides. We enjoyed sampling wine from local vineyards and you can get special deals during the event. This is a family event so please feel free to bring children!! Lawn chairs and blankets are permitted but no pets or coolers please!!!
There is limited on site parking so we may want to carpool. The gates open at 7am and close at 830pm. As the date gets closer we will plan on the best time to get there. Tickets are $10 for an adult, $5 for kids 6 to 12 years old , and free for kids under 5.
