WRAL Freedom Balloon Festival

May 26, 2017 @ 8:00 am - May 29, 2017 @ 5:00 pm

WRAL Freedom Balloon Festival
May 26-29
Fleming Loop Park, Fuquay-Varina NC

The three day event will feature competitive balloon flights, tethered balloon rides, evening glows and a myriad of activities planned from sunrise to sundown. Hot air balloons only fly early morning and late afternoon/early evening, but there will be plenty to do all day!  Expanded entertainment, including a classic car show and performances by Disc Connected K9s, has been added. Expect a great weekend filled with lots of activity, entertainment and food.

With crowds expected to exceed 80,000, there are plenty of business and volunteer opportunities for our community! The Chamber will host a  Merchant, Arts & Crafts Village.  Hundreds of volunteers are needed for the festival to be a success and volunteer training will take place during April!  To learn more about business, sponsorship and volunteer opportunities, visit www.FreedomBalloonFest.com.
