Sandy City Balloon Festival

August, 12-13, 2011
Food, Fun, Entertainment

See a sky full of hot air balloons at the 2011 Sandy Hot Air Balloon Festival.

The sunrise balloon launch happens both mornings between 6:30-8:00 am at Storm Mountain Park, 11400 South 1000 East, directions. Bright Eyes Coffee and Smoothies will be on hand to provide morning breakfast fuel for everyone.

The balloon glow begins on Saturday evening around 8:00 pm, at the South Towne Promenade in front of Sandy City Hall, 175 West 10000 South. Enjoy entertainment from the band Cold Creek on the festival stage.

Bring the whole family to see the balloons fly and at dusk on Saturday enjoy food and entertainment and the glow of the balloons in the night sky.

Some pilots may need volunteers to help crew their hot air balloons. Come early, find a pilot that needs help and experience the thrill of helping crew a hot air balloon.

Take your camera and enter the Sandy Balloon Festival photo contest to win prizes. More information coming soon.
