2017 Heritage Inn International Balloon Festival features 20+ hot air balloons from across Canada and the world flying over High River, with many pilots competing in the Canadian Balloon Championship. Friday evening balloon glow gives visitors the opportunity to see the balloons up close, meet the pilots and visit the food trucks. (All flights and events weather dependent).
What is Night Glow?
The balloons are set up at sunset in the launch area, inflated and lit up. The sight of the balloons glow like huge light bulbs gives a spectacular display for the audience.
