This Spooktacular Hot Air Balloon Festival is a 2-day family friendly event held at Kennesaw State University Sports + Recreation Park, just 20 miles north of downtown Atlanta.
This show features amazing Balloon Glows, Trick-or-Treating, Tethered Balloon Rides, Harvest Beer Tents, Vendor Marketplace, Sports Bar, Artist Market, Amazing Food Trucks, Roving Entertainment, Interactive Kid’s Area, a Main Concert Stage, and more!
The 2013 event proved to be so popular that it has now been expanded to a 2-day event, on an enlarged the event site, and there will be an increased number of participating balloons.
One word of advice for spectators – check the ticket prices before you go. Last year there were lots of complaints about the price of tickets and a mysterious booking fee which was charged on every ticket ($3 online or $1 at the gate).
Organisers have also promised that festival-goers will also notice additional improvements to traffic control, parking, signage, and ticketing, to further enhance the festival experience.
