Few things rival the serenity and beauty of hot air balloons, and we have them as a feature of our 2021 Upper Cumberland Air Fair! On Friday night, you can see a spectacular sight as the balloons light up the sky in gorgeous color with in a Night Glow presentation. The next morning, you can get a tethered ride in one of these same balloons!

PLEASE PLAN TO ARRIVE EARLY ON SATURDAY, AS WE EXPECT RIDES TO SELL OUT QUICKLY. The balloons will NOT operate if the wind is present, so please plan accordingly. This time of year it’s likely that we will only have a few hours in the morning before the wind makes it unsafe to do the tethers.

BALLOON RIDES will be sold onsite Saturday morning only. Rides are $20 per adult, $15 for kids 12-under. Subject to weather. Event admission is additional and required, buy one ticket, good for both days! You can buy event tickets online by CLICKING HERE
