A Hot Air Balloon Festival Near Austin Is Coming This Spring With Flights For Only $30
Change your altitude!
Georgetown is one of the most fun small towns in Texas. Just minutes north from Austin, this neighborhood combines modernity with a peaceful vibe. With its beautiful scenery, enigmatic caves, and charming downtown, it's a must-visit for anyone. Next March, you will be able to see Georgetown as never before: from up in a hot air balloon at a Georgetown Hot Air Balloon Festival.
The best part of this flight-filled fest is that you can still get free tickets for this two-day event, so don't wait.
The number of tickets is limited and only for Friday. If you don't get the free entry offer, admission to the event is still only just $10.
It doesn't matter if you decide to hit the fest with your pals or boo; it will be a blast either way.
Georgetown Hot Air Balloon Festival & Polo Match will take place on Friday, March 27, and Saturday, March 28.
Friday hours will last from 4:00 to 8:00 p.m. and Saturday from 7:00 a.m. in Garey Park.
By attending, you get to enjoy a polo match with beautiful horses, fashion shows, live music, hot air balloon tethered rides, delicious food, drink options, and unlimited fun.
The hot air balloon tethered rides will be available both days in order of arrival and depending on weather conditions. If you have tickets to fly in a balloon, make sure to arrive a bit early.
If you don't catch the hot air balloon inflation and glow on Friday, you can get up early and enjoy it Saturday from 7:00 a.m. It's so worth it.
Then, from 11:00 a.m., you can enjoy yourself, and maybe grab some lunch with a side of live music.
If you have any of the VIP admission tickets, you can also hang out at the Hospitality Alcohol Tasting Tent, attend the Battle of the Chefs Tasting Competition, and the rivalry Polo matches throughout the day. The hot air balloon rides resume at 4:00 p.m. on Saturday.
What you can do at the fest is limited by your ticket. General Admission is $10 each day, and hot air balloon tethered rides are $30 per person.
If you want the VIP option, get the Golden Mallet Pass plus Rosé All Day Lounge. With this admission, you can see the balloons and the polo match, plus you get unlimited Whispering Angel Rosé from 11:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. You will also get lunch and access to a private bar.
This pass also includes access to all scheduled morning and evening hot air balloon activations — all for $75.
Other ticket options, including packages for couples with unlimited bubbly rosé and hot air balloon rides, are also available. Make sure to check them all here.
