I hope you are all having a great Thursday! It is a rainy and cold day here in Arizona. I am not complaining though since I love the rain.
Just to be upfront this is a sponsored post. However, I stay true to myself and this blog and would never advertise or tell you about something I myself would not be interested in!
Main squeeze is a big fan of Hot Air Balloons so when I heard about this event on Facebook , I knew I wanted to get involved.
When they reached out to me regarding working with them, I was thrilled!
On a side note for all of my running readers, there is even a 5k event!
Without further introduction, here are the details!
50 hot air balloons will decorate the sky at the 2nd annual Out West Balloon Fest and Fun Run at the University of Phoenix Stadium in Glendale, Ariz. On March 4, 5 and 6, 2016.
Spectators will witness the launch of the most beautiful vehicles in the sky and partake in a weekend full of special activities to keep the whole family entertained.
Balloon pilots will participate in various balloon competitions, such as the Hare and Hound race, to win prizes throughout the weekend.
“It not only generates a competitive edge for our balloon pilots, but it’s a magnificent site to see by spectators,” said Vanessa Clifton, owner of Aerial Solutions, LLC, event coordinator for the Out West Balloon Fest.
From the beautiful Great lawn of the stadium, spectators will watch balloons launch each morning, and watch them glow on Friday and Saturday evenings.
After each morning launch, the Prescott Regulators and their Shady Ladies will be putting on one of the best gunfighter shows in the Southwest. Other activities include tethered balloon rides, a kids zone, a charity 5k Fun Run Saturday morning, market vendors, live music and much more.
Bring your appetite because on the ground attendees will find dozens of food and novelty vendors, hours of live music, wine and craft beer tastings and opportunities to mingle with the balloon pilots.
