Gulf Coast Hot Air Balloon Festival
Posted on April 16, 2015
If you own a home in Foley or will be shopping real estate on Alabama’s Gulf Coast this May, be sure to stop in to the Gulf Coast Hot Air Balloon Festival! Now in its’ eleventh year, this is a favorite festival for visitors and locals alike.
Stop in to the festival either Friday or Saturday evening beginning May 1, 2015 to head up, up and away – well, almost. Grab a bird’s eye view yourself or simple watch as the multitude of hot air balloons treat festival goers to tethered rides 25 feet in the air. There are a limited number of rides available so purchase yours early!
In addition to the tethered rides and aerial demonstrations that will take place all weekend, there will also be a wonderful carnival for adults and kids to enjoy. The weekend also features live entertainment each afternoon, as well as arts, crafts, delicious food and a petting zoo. Oh, and since it is crawfish season here on the Gulf Coast, you can also head over to the boil to purchase a plate of yummy crawfish! See you at the festival grounds near the Tanger Outlets the first weekend of May.
