General Admission: FREE! Come watch live entertainment Friday and Saturday night for free! There is no cost to come watch the balloons fly!

Tethered Rides: 8 hot air balloons will give rides to those who have paid for a ticket. The balloons are tied to the ground using ropes and go up in the air about 45-50ft. Balloons will be visible and begin setting up around dusk. This is great for all ages! Get the chance to get inside a hot air balloon and meet the pilot! We recommend you get to the festival grounds early! Rides are all weather dependent. No refunds allowed. We recommend you are there 2 hours prior to sunset (about 5:00pm) Ticket booth will open at 4:00 pm, we will have a limited number available onsite for sale. 

WE DO NOT OFFER FULL BALLOON RIDES DURING THIS EVENT. 

Parking: We understand parking can be a bear!

VIP: We recommend our VIP parking pass that allows you to park directly near the grounds (only $20) good for the whole weekend.

General Parking: Our ($5) general parking pass can be purchased early so you aren't having to pull out your wallet again! General parking pass is good for 1 day only. This parking is on festival grounds just a bit further away from VIP. Click here to check out the festival map for a better overview. Parking onsite will close at 8:00 PM each night. Anyone wanting to join us for the bands after 8:00 pm will need to ride the shuttle from Tanger Outlets. To better assist those who will be leaving the festival, all entrances at onsite parking will be turned to exits at 8:00 pm. 

Shuttle Parking: A shuttle service is also available at Tanger Outlets in Foley beginning at 2:00pm - 10:00pm on Friday and Saturday. Shuttle charges $1 per person both ways, children 12 and under ride free. Park your car behind the Nike Outlet and enjoy the ride! Shuttles run every 45 min.
