Event Information

For Father's Day weekend, how about treating Dad to a spectacular air show or a ride in a balloon?  Above the rolling hills of Chester County, beautiful hot air balloons will light up on Friday evening and float in the skies on Saturday.  Friday evening features a night show called the Balloon Glow, where colorful balloons will inflate at dusk and remained tethered.  The balloons will light their burners in a synchronized show that dazzles the crowd with different shapes and colors.  Although the best view of the Balloon Glow is from the Glow Party, an event that requires tickets and includes a catered buffet, live music and a chance to meet the balloon pilots, you can still see the balloons for free from other vantage points.

Also included Friday night will be a children's music circle and the Country Kid Jamboree Show.  Saturday's festivities begin at 3pm with concerts, the children's music circle, and more chances to see the Country Kid Jamboree Show.  Craft and food vendors, face painting, inflatable rides, games, and sand art will be available.  Entertain the kids at the Kids Fun Zone.  If you just can't wait to experience a flight of fancy of your own, book an hour-long balloon ride for $225.00.  For free, you can let the kids squeal in delight as they watch balloons of every description arrive or become inflated in preparation for the balloon launch at 6pm.

After the balloons launch, be sure to stick around for the fireworks display at 9pm. This weekend event of hot air balloon fun is destined to keep every kid and parent entertained, and it's a great way to celebrate with your favorite dad.  All proceeds from the event will benefit the West Bradford Youth Athletic Intramural sports programs.
