Description

The organizers proudly say that Balloon Fiesta "is the largest ballooning event on earth, the most photographed event on earth, and the largest annual international event held in the United States." If that's not motivating enough, imagine hundreds balloons launched at the same time from a field that is big as 54 football pitches. The whole sky is covered with colorful balloons and tens of thousands people try take photos of this impressive scene. Before the launching of the balloons, visitors can walk around the field and take a close look at the magical floating balls. After sunset the balloons are grounded before the sky is set alight again, this time with grandiose fireworks. If you want to leave the ground for a while, you can take an organized short balloon trip and ascend to the sky yourself and be part of 'the greatest show OFF earth!"
