Oklahoma Festival of Ballooning
August 17 @ 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm
An event every day that begins at 4:00pm, repeating until August 18, 2018
Join us as we fill the sky over Muskogee’s Hatbox Field with the beautiful colors and magic of hot air balloons giving rides and competing for the Oklahoma Hot Air Balloon Championship Governor’s Trophy TM!
Both evenings will feature tether rides for those wanting a few minutes in a hot air balloon that is tied with long ropes to the ground. Also featured will be luminous glows just after dark with many of the balloons inflated and lit like enormous lanterns. And, Friday evening, Saturday morning, and Saturday evening will have a few exclusive spots open in some of the baskets for those wanting to reserve an opportunity to fly along with the festival’s pilots as they compete for the 2018 Governor’s Trophy.
This new event is presented by Muskogee Parks & Recreation Department with hot air balloon event management provided by Kansas City AeroSports. Additional support is being provided by The City of Muskogee, Muskogee Tourism and The Greater Muskogee Area Chamber of Commerce.
All hot air balloon activities will be dependent on weather conditions deemed safe for pilots, their crews, passengers and spectators following Federal Aviation Administration regulations.
