Once again, the Plano Balloon Festival was a fantastic success. For the first time ever, festival goers were allowed to walk the field during the Balloon Glow. It was truly a wonderful experience for kids and adults!

The Plano Balloon Festival, founded in 1980, is a 3-day festival celebrated at Oak Point Park in Plano, Texas. The festival, which takes place in September each year, includes multiple balloon launches (weather permitting), Balloon Glows, a 5K fun run and a half-marathon. There’s also a parachute jump, a kids fun-zone and lot’s of fair food and fun things to buy! Find out more at planoballoonfest.org
