Balloons Over Paradise

April 26, 2014 @ 5:30 am - April 27, 2014 @ 6:30 pm


This is a two-day Hot Air Balloon Festival held just outside of Naples, Florida in Immokalee. This colorful celebration features more than 50 custom hot air balloons and plenty of fun for the whole family including tethered balloon rides, live music by award-winning performers, food vendors, an art showcase, children’s activities, carnival games, acrobatic kite demonstrations, a classic car show, demonstrations by agility dogs and more.

Admission is free to the all-ages for all parts of the festival including the music concerts. Free parking.

If you are coming out to see the balloons, plan on coming early. The best weather conditions are in the morning increasing the probability for balloon flight. A balloon glow is scheduled for 6am and mass ascension between 7am and 8am.

The vivid multi-hued balloons will kick off each morning with an illuminated light show to orchestral music. Festival-goers can stroll among the balloons as they inflate for a mass ascension into the sky. Specialty balloons include Sugar Bear, Ella “phant” and a flying globe.

Children can join in on the fun with storytelling, bounce houses and a climbing wall. Food vendors will be on-hand with Amish donuts, kettle corn, crepes and great grilled hamburgers, hot dogs and sausage. Attendees will also enjoy funnel cakes, cotton candy and other treats. Pets and coolers are not permitted.
