- A Unique Collection of Hot Air Balloons
Participants in the Red River Balloon Rally come from all over the country, from Michigan to New Mexico and many points in-between. Some are here for the competitive flights, while others are here to show off the unique designs on their hot air balloons. From dazzling, multi-colored geometric designs to fun, silly designs like the giant mustache balloon, there's a design to suit every taste. The collection of pilots is just as unique as the collection of balloons, so there will be plenty to see throughout both nights of the event.
- Tether Balloon Rides and Kidz Fun Zone
Of course, it wouldn't be a proper Red River Balloon Rally without the chance to take to the skies yourself! On both nights, there will be tethered balloon rides offered so that you can enjoy a similar experience to the balloon pilots when they take off from the ground. Enjoy unmatched views of the event from above and give the whole family a thrill in the process. There will also be a Kidz Fun Zone open throughout the two-day event, with tons of fun activities, games, and events for the kids.
- Four Live Bands on Two Evenings
Live entertainment is also a big part of the Red River Balloon Rally, with two different bands taking the stage each evening. Friday night features a performance from Tipsey, followed by a set from Odyssey Road, a Journey tribute band. On Saturday evening, you can catch Shayliff on stage for the first show, followed by LANCO to close out the evening.
- Cap Off the Night with the Balloon Glow and Fireworks Show
Perhaps the two most spectacular sights of the evening will be the Balloon Glow which takes place after dark, and the fireworks show that closes out the evening. Both events take place on Friday and Saturday, so you won't miss a thing no matter which night you visit.
- Start Your Day Watching a US Team Nationals Competition Flight
In conjunction with the Red River Balloon Rally, a US Team Nationals Competition Flight will take place June 21-25 at the same location.
