The Mesquite Balloon Festival Night Glow

Let's do a run out to Mesquite for the Balloon Festival at the CasaBlanca. The Night Glow goes from 6-7pm.

"As the sun goes down, a balloon glow will take place in the evening offering spectators a breathtaking view of inflated balloons lighted by their burners in the CasaBlanca Parking lot. Hot air balloons will be on display with the opportunity to chat with the pilots and walk around the balloons."...CasaBlanca website

First group meets at the Fiesta Henderson (under the marquee) @ 2:15 & leaves no later than 2:30pm. We will then meet everyone at the Petro/Iron Skillet Exit #54 (Speedway Blvd.). We will leave for Mesquite at 3:15pm. We should arrive in Mesquite between 4:15-4:30pm.
This gives us time to park, look around, grab a bite to eat, or enjoy the Champagne tasting in the Skydome Lounge. The Night Glow starts at 6pm in the South Parking Lot.

My understanding is that this is a free event (not sure about the Champagne tasting). There is the Balloon Launch at 7:30 am that morning also. If anyone is interested in that please contact me (Cheryl G).

    Internet weather sites show that rain will not hit until later in the evening. Maybe bring an umbrella or poncho just in case. Don't forget your camera too!!! Awesome photo ops:-)

    Hey all, I called and talked to the sales team in charge of the balloon festival. As of today they are still planning on having the event. They said that everything is going to be played by ear. I am still planning on going:-)

    The following day is the Laps for Charity event, so that would be a little much for me, sorry. The Balloon Festival sounds like a lot of fun and I would have stayed overnight.

      It is a lot. Sorry:( Sometimes we can't help others dates. I wish there was another Balloon Festival scheduled but I didn't see any. This is a really cool thing to see.
