Balloons launch this weekend in Angel Fire

Mountains, blue sky towering clouds and colorful balloons…. Balloons Over Angel Fire will fill the skies of the Moreno Valley with 40 hot-air balloons this Father’s Day weekend, June 16-18. Each day begins with a mass ascension, Saturday evening ends with a balloon glow. Balloon rides will also be available for a fee with advanced reservations. For more information go to balloonsoverangelfire.com.

Want to be part of a chase crew?  Balloon pilots are always looking for additional help in inflating, chasing and deflating the balloon each day. Arrive at the launch field any or all of the mornings of Mass Balloon Ascensions no later than 6:30 a.m. and volunteer to assist a pilot with their balloon. In return, most pilots will also offer you a ride for your help! This is a great way to find out more about the sport of hot-air ballooning and have a fun experience.
