Ballooning for All is a balloon rally for people of all abilities, special needs, and you! Join us on the Balloon Museum's expansive and scenic North Grounds for a truly unique event featuring more than a dozen hot air balloons.

The morning begins with balloon inflations, crewing, and tethered rides. Wheelchair accessible gondolas will be on site.

  • New this Year: Yoga! Yoga lovers may take an indoor yoga class with a view of the balloon rally. Class begins at 8:00 a.m., and is presented by Wellness & Wine Yoga. You must register in advance for the yoga class. Click Here to register.

Later on, visitors can enjoy a breakfast tailgate festival, food trucks, activities, and community resource booths. Don't miss appearances by Special Orchestra and Keshet Inclusion Dance.  The event also helps to celebrate World Down Syndrome Day, so people are encouraged to donate a new baby blanket for baby welcome baskets.
