No. The event is an evening glow, meaning all the balloons remain on the ground during the event allowing guests to get up close and personal with these gentle giants. Each hot air balloons serves as a trick-or-treat station for the kids!
The balloons begin to inflate at sunset and glow as long as their fuel allows. This means balloons are usually up from about 5:45pm to approximately 8:45 to 9:15pm, conditional on weather.
