HOW TO ENJOY

Hot air balloons take off every 5:30-6:00 AM depending on wind conditions. The next opportunity to see the balloons will be at the Night Glow. It is best to be at the fiesta grounds earlier than this to secure a good viewing spot either at the covered seating area or the outdoor fiesta grounds. All hot air balloon activities are subject to favorable wind conditions.

Each aviation event requires different weather conditions. Good wind conditions for one activity may be bad for another! Hot air balloons, for example, require very specific weather conditions. They cannot inflate or fly if the wind is too strong, and they cannot fly if the air is too hot. Hot air balloons are best for winds of 6-8kph. If the wind reaches 18kph, it is very dangerous for pilots to inflate the balloons and could put audience at risk. On the other hand, kites require stronger winds in order for them to fly!

Casual, comfortable clothing is recommended. We hope for cool weather in the early morning and early evening. For the rest of the day, weather is usually sunny, but it’s also good to be prepared for some rain. It’s quite cold and windy during dawn so a jacket would be advisable. The sun will be high in the middle of the day, so be prepared for heat and the sun.

Wear light clothing, and sturdy but comfortable shoes for the open field. Remember your hats, umbrellas, shades, and sunblock!

It really depends on what you prefer. On the first day, Friday traffic is lighter than the weekend and the Fiesta isn’t as crowded, so the experience is fun but more relaxed. On the weekend there will be fireworks displays to close the Fiesta. Because of this and of freedom from work or school, the big crowds arrive on Saturday and Sunday. 

The weekends are especially lively and energetic, but please keep in mind that these are also the days when the crowd is thickest, and the traffic is heaviest!

It is when Hot Air Balloons glow and sync their lighting to the music and paragliders fly and perform aerobatic maneuvers alongside them.
