SAVE THE DATE FOR 2020 - JUNE 26TH - 28TH
The 2nd Annual White Mountains Hot Air Balloon Festival returns to Pinetop-Lakeside in 2019 with a new look and feel. The event has expanded to three days and all activities will be free to the public.
Come out and enjoy Spectacular Hot Air Balloons, Live Music, Food & Retail Vendors, a Beer Garden, Free Tethered Balloon Rides, and more!
The White Mountain Balloon Festival is almost here, and we wanted to offer a few helpful hints to make your experience the best it can be.
Please remember all balloon activity is dependent on the weather.
Please bring your chairs and blankets in the evenings to enjoy the entertainment.
Most vendors only accept cash, so be sure to hit the ATM on your way to the festival.
Entrance to the festival is free. The entertainment and tethered hot air balloon rides are free. The beer garden, food vendors, and retail vendors require payment.
In order to participate in the tethered rides, you must be tall enough to see over the balloon basket. The balloon will go about 40 feet in the air.
Calling All Crew!
Many people ask, “What does it take to put up a Hot Air Balloon?” Or, “How can I get a balloon ride?”
