Hot air balloon season is back and we know where you can find all of the coolest ones in the Metroplex. From Sept. 20 to 22, Plano will be having its hot air balloon festival. The Balloon Fest will have tons of fun things to do and don't worry, if you're not a fan of heights, you can enjoy the view from the ground.
The event will feature live music, tons of food, and plenty of vendors. You'll be able to purchase balloon themed items to enjoy while you sit and watch over 40 hot air balloons take to the air. They will feature a balloon glow at the end of each night so you can watch these balloons light up right in front of your eyes. If you're looking for a thrill, you can check out their skydivers flying in the air and making it back to the ground.
Tethered rides are going to be available to the public at this Balloon Fest. The rides are $25 per adult and they take you about 30 feet above the crowd. To take an awesome ride you will need cash because they don't take cards!
Tickets are on sale now at just $10 but you can also purchase a three-day pass for $20. The event will start at 4 p.m. on Friday but you will have until 7 p.m. on Sunday to join in the fun. Premium parking is $10 but you can leave your car at the DART Parker Road Station and ride to the event for free.
Once you're done hanging out at this awesome balloon event, you can grab your favorite pup and go check out a movie in DFW.
