“Balloonapalooza Winter Spectacular”

This weekend Friday through Sunday, December 15, 16, 17, 2017, the “Balloonapalooza” Tour will be visiting the Florida State Fairgrounds and it is an event that you won’t want to miss!

The “Balloonapalooza” Winter Spectacular will allow guests to take hot air balloon rides from tethered hot air balloons stationed at the Fairgrounds. If you have never been on a hot air balloon ride, this is the ideal time, because it will only be thirty to forty feet up in the air and tethered to the ground, so that should take away any possible fear you may have had.

Along with the hot air balloon fun, there will be plenty of food options from local vendors, arts and crafts and live music entertainment throughout the event. A Carnival will also be set up and available for family-fun and an appearance from Santa Claus.

There will also be a special Hot Air Balloon Night Glow Show which is sure to be amazing and much more fun throughout the day!

  • $15.00 for Adults (Advanced Purchase Price)
