The Annual Hot Air Balloon Festival has been happening for over 30 years now! It’s always fun and exciting as many hot air balloons are released into the sky full of spectators that line up along Bayshore Road in anticipation. The festivities include live entertainment all day long, food vendors, and activities for kids such as face painting and kites too! There’s also a nightly Glow Parade, where balloons are lit up with LED lights and set loose to dance in the sky.
Whataburger Fun Day features free Whataburgers for all, as well as games like inflatables that people of all ages can enjoy!
