Hot Air Balloon Festival Volunteer Information
Become a part of Callaway Resort and Gardens’ beloved Annual Hot Air Balloon Festival this Labor Day Weekend, Friday, August 31st – Sunday, September 2nd, 2018, by joining a balloon crew! It’s a terrific way to get involved with your community and experience ballooning first hand and comes with perks.
There is a Balloon Glow on Friday and Sunday nights with set-up beginning around 7 p.m.
The balloon inflation and tethered rides are Saturday, Sept. 1st, and Sunday, Sept. 2nd, starting between 6:30 a.m. and 7:30 a.m. and then again around 4 p.m. Pilots will inflate their balloons and offer tethered rides as long as the winds are calm and ideal for inflation and will need assistance throughout the process.
The 20th Annual Hot Air Balloon Festival will be an exciting time and becoming a crew member is a great way help make this event safe for members of our community and successful for the thousands of visitors who will be in town to enjoy Labor Day weekend.
