Meet the balloons
weekend fun for the entire family
Balloons inflate and light themselves by the large flame fueled by a propane gas tank set at the base of each balloon just above each rider basket. The sight of hot air balloons lit up like giant light bulbs is quite popular and visually breathtaking. At Balloons over Horseshoe Bay Resort, event organizers will coordinate ‘all burns’ where pilots fire up their burners illuminating their balloons all at once. Pilots will also perform 'flicker' burns where pilots simultaneously make their balloons flicker by lighting up and quickly turning off the flames inside the balloons. The crowd will be expected to perform ‘count downs’ prior to each 'full burn' and 'flicker burn'. The balloons will glow after sunset on Friday evening and Saturday evening. A Balloon Glow is a MUST SEE event! Make sure you bring your camera!!!
