The Kiwanis Club of South Central Indiana will conduct our 1st Annual Kiwanis Hot Air Balloon Fest at the Monroe County Fairgrounds in Bloomington, Indiana on September 6th – 8th, 2013. Our 7 year old Kiwanis Club of 65 members will use the funds generated from the Balloon Fest to support Riley Children’s Hospital, Boys & Girls Clubs of Bloomington, and other club projects that benefit the children of our community. We are anxiously looking forward to this year’s balloon launches during the evenings of September 6th – 7th. We will host 20 colorful, enormous hot air balloons at this event and there is nothing more beautiful than to see these multicolored balloons ascend into the sky at dusk.
Another popular event of the Balloon Fest is the Night Glow. Following each evening’s launch the balloons return to the festival to conduct a Night Glow. At this event, the balloons are tethered to the ground and they use their propane heaters to light up the multicolored balloons synchronized to music. It is one of the most fascinating sites imaginable. Tethered balloon rides will be available throughout the event at a nominal cost.
Food vendors will be present to entice the taste buds, musical entertainment, as well as a few other exciting events. These events will include a Kiwanis Idol, Cornhole Tournament, Chili Cook-Off and our annual Health & Safety Family FUN! Fair.
Balloon Fest tickets are only $12 per carload. It is a family-friendly, smoke-free event for all ages.
