Saturday morning we will board the bus at 4AM to travel over to the airport to the balloon festival, last year over 125 balloons were observed. If you want to take a balloon ride we can arrange that for you, at an additional charge (TBD), either Friday night or Saturday/Sunday morning, weather permitting. Morning rides are better chances weather wise. They do offer rides from one side of the airport to the other, which is very short. We will try to get our members that are interested the longer ride (1-1.5 hours) at an off site location. This is all arranged on trip not prior too, which for hot air ballooning is the way to do it, so much is riding on the weather, wind speeds or lack of.
