Typically the balloons fly at sunrise and sunset. There are planned balloon launches between 6pm & 7.30pm on Friday and Saturday and a Saturday morning ascent between 6am and 7:30am. Balloons require specific weather conditions to fly and the safety of our pilots and guests is of the utmost concern and all balloon activity is weather permitting.
