Let your Labor Day take flight! See hot air balloons soar, or take a tethered ride yourself in our picture-perfect farewell to Summer.
The magic begins with the extraordinary Friday Night Balloon Glow, where balloons illuminate the night, and the festivities continue all weekend long. Spend your holiday engaging in a variety of family-friendly events, including live music, beach activities, a Classic Car Show and a Kids Zone*, or escape for a quiet hike or bike along miles of winding trails within the Gardens. And photography buffs can get a crash course in evening shoots with our “Mastering Night Photography.”
Delicious food and drink specials, beautiful accommodations, wonderful resort amenities, and simply spectacular scenery make this one sweet welcome to September.
*Special Events Admission rates apply for Day Guests on Saturday and Sunday. Admission included for overnight Resort Guests. No Rainchecks or Refunds on Ticket Purchase. Additional fees on select activities for all guests, including Tethered Balloon rides ($10pp cash only).
