What is a balloon flight like?

Jump in and fly away among a colorful array of balloons of all shapes and sizes as you drift over Chester County countryside.

The hot air balloon experience is described as a top “bucket list” activity. Feel the exhilaration as you defy gravity, safe within the balloon basket manned by our balloon crew. Elating and memorable, not to mention photogenic!

During the flight, you’ll be experiencing grand views of farmland, flying over Coatesville, Downingtown, and Exton. You’ll then be brought back to the festival grounds where you can enjoy food and fun.

Your feet won’t even feel like they left the ground!
