Summer is on the horizon and that means it’s time for the annual Gulf Coast Hot Air Balloon Festival! This year marks the 10th anniversary of the Gulf Coast Hot Air Balloon Festival, and with over 50 hot air balloonists from around the United States, this is going to be a show you don’t want to miss.
The festival will take place on June 13th and 14th from 2:00 PM – 10:00 PM. If you’re trying to get a good look at the balloons, it is highly recommended that you arrive around or prior to 6 AM. If you’re not an early bird, the balloons are scheduled to fly again at dusk (7 p.m.). The weather will play a huge factor in whether the balloons will fly or not, that is why the morning show is the recommended show.
Just looking for a good time? There will be plenty of entertainment throughout the day including live music, antique tractor displays, kid’s fun, unique arts & crafts, and you can enjoy some delicious local BBQ. Additionally, here on the Gulf Coast we will show you one of the best Fourth of July celebrations you have ever seen!
If you’re looking to stay for the Fourth of July weekend, please make sure and make your reservations ahead of time, as we are usually sold out during the 4th of July weekend. Check out our specials page to receive $100 off when you book four nights!
