Start your morning off with the mass balloon ascension, then stick around to see the Wings of skydiving demonstrations, wakeboarding exhibitions, paddle boarding, live entertainment, chainsaw carving, donut eating competitions and, of course,  the fabulous food vendors and concessionaires. Come back in the evening and enjoy live entertainment before the Balloon Glow.
