Events Description

The Heritage Inn International Balloon Festival returns to High River for the 6th year in a row. Featuring balloons from around the world, there will be lots to see in the skies over High River!

Night Glow — Cancelled for 2020

Within current AHS parameters, the popular Friday night Balloon Glow is cancelled.

The highlight of this event is the Night Glow, scheduled for Friday. Guests have the opportunity to watch the balloons “glow” in the dark, see the balloons up close and meet the pilots. On site there will be a walk-in balloon – you can actually walk inside and see how a hot air balloon inflates. Come early and visit one of our many Food Vendors and enjoy this free event. The balloons will glow for a maximum of one hour from 8pm.

What is Night Glow?

Balloons inflate and light themselves from within using their burners. The sight of hot air balloons lit up like giant light bulbs is amazing. Pilots will coordinate ‘all burns’ where they fire up their burners illuminating their balloons all at once and also perform ‘count downs’ which are very crowd participatory events.


Free event. – No tickets required.


Date: September 23-27, 2020. – Schedule

All flights are weather dependent.

There will be no food trucks at the launches. This year you can only see the balloon launch at the launch site and the balloon flight. Look to the skies as balloons will paint the sky as they launch daily at 7:30AM and 5:00PM (weather dependant).
