There's something magical about watching a small basket attached to a huge colorful balloon fly up high into the sky. It's exciting to watch bundles of the massive, vibrant balloons take off together and luckily, you don't have to travel far to get to experience it live. Houston's hot air balloon fest will be happening at a big polo event returning to the city this spring!

The Victory Cup is coming back to Houston on May 15 and 16 and will once again be enhancing the event in the coolest way possible, by releasing multiple hot air balloons up high in the sky. 

The Victory Cup has been keeping up the hot air balloon tradition for a while now and most recently their polo event this past December also had hot air balloon flights and it was an awesome sight to see.

This 2-day-long event is packed full with a bunch of stuff to see and do and on Friday, May 15, you can even go into the balloons for a tethered ride up in the air.

There will also be delicious food vendors, music, bars, and of course, exciting polo matches. 

The event has so much stuff to enjoy, you'd think tickets would be pricey but you can get free tickets for Friday right now!

However, if you want to ride in the hot air balloons, those tickets start at $30 which is still a good price for such a unique experience.

Make sure you get your tickets soon though because prices will increase February 1.

Hot air balloons might be an efficient mode of transportation but that doesn't mean they're not popular attractions and on Valentine's Day, Fredericksburg is going to be having a hot air balloon fest where you can also take a ride in the balloons!
