Memorial Day weekend
Number of balloons: 60+
3 days of hot air balloons filling the El Paso skies, 3 afternoons of concerts and fun in the sun.
Over 30 balloons, including special shapes will be part of this year’s launch.
This year’s throwback theme to celebrate our 30th anniversary features Star Wars character balloons Darth Vader and Master Yoda. Dozens of other balloons will join our two featured flyers to dance across the El Paso sky.
The launch takes place at day break (approximately 6:00am) and is free for all to attend. Food vendors will be available for you and your family to enjoy breakfast during the launch.
After the balloons launch, stop by the PARTY! A weekend of water rides, swimming, concerts, and grilling will take place at Wet N Wild! KLAQ will be broadcasting live all weekend long from the WB Liquors Broadcast Stage! Plus, each day we will feature local bands, starting at noon, and different headlining artists on the Budweiser stage.
Tickets for Balloonfest concerts are on sale now at area 7-Eleven/ Alon Stores. These tickets will get you access to the water park, and concerts.
