It is going to “blow you away!!”

An estimated crowd of over 20,000 spectators came out to enjoy the balloons each our first 2 years.  We were overwhelmed and overjoyed with your enthusiasm of the sport of hot air ballooning!  This 3rd year it is our goal to bring in even more Hot Air Balloons, approximately 25 -30, including some new SPECIAL SHAPES from all over the country that will magically color the Little Rock sky in the mornings and will “Glow” with a rainbow of twinkling colors in the evenings with new Special Shaped balloons to add to the fun. We will have jazz music, food, vendors, and children’s activities throughout the weekend as well.  In addition, this event will aid in community involvement, as we are once again, inviting local businesses and nonprofit charitable organizations to participate so that they may showcase their products and raise awareness and funds for their special services and programs.

This year the benefiting nonprofits are:  Autism Speaks, The Boys & Girls Club, Civitan , and Special Olympics   This year there will be a $5 per person entry fee for the weekend.  Kids 12 and under are free!  Wristbands will be provided when you buy your tickets at the main gate. $5 parking fee for areas on the golf course and surrounding the stadium. We will also have food and alcohol $1 tickets for sale in 2 areas, near the main gate and on the golf course. * * No ice chests or outside food is allowed in the park or on the golf course please. ** Please leave your furry friends at home.

Come and join us for this celebration and excitement of Hot Air Ballooning at the War Memorial Park and Golf Course!
