The tradition of hot air ballooning has been demonstrated at the Carolina BalloonFest held in Statesville, NC every year. The event is much more than a bunch of hot air balloons, while that is the main focus of the colorful festival. The event hosts plenty of entertainment, attractions and family fun making this festival the perfect place to enjoy a night out with family as fall starts to roll in.

Over 50 colorful hot air balloons will fill the sky in Statesville this year from October 16th – 18th. The 3 days of balloon filled fun will include everything from balloon rides, to an artisan village & marketplace, and even a kids zone! There is sure to be something for everyone in the three days of activities. And if you are a runner, why not run with the balloons? The weekend will be host to a 5k and kids fun run as well!

Carolina BalloonFest is a rain or shine event and tickets are non-refundable. It is recommended that you plan to arrive early to park because it will definitely fill up fast! Also, don’t forget to pack some cash because most of the vendors are cash only. Balloon flights will be happening twice daily.

So grab some friends or family, a blanket, lawn chairs and your camera and be sure to make a trip to the Carolina BalloonFest in Statesville this fall! Advance tickets are on sale now online, where you can also find plenty more information on the event.
