Primary Menu reports that a hot air balloon event known as the  Up Up And Away Festival is coming to Lakeland, Florida beginning February 28ht. through March 1st. The city’s skyline will be filled with the beautiful and vibrant colors of dozens of hot air balloons.

The experience of riding in a hot air balloon is something I would imagine to be both frightening and exhilarating at the same time. If it’s something you’ve always wanted to do, this is your chance.

Hot air balloon rides are typically a pretty costly experience. But at this Up Up And Away Festival, both free and tethered balloon rides will be available starting at only $20. (weather permitting)

If you’ve never seen a sky filled with hot air balloons, it’s a mesmerizing sight. So, the festival is something you’ll want to see, even if you aren’t so sure you want a ride.

There will be lots of fun activities for folks of all ages including; arts and craft vendors, helicopter rides, and aerialist performances. For the kids an archery tag and a fun zone.

Live entertainment each day with music and dance, plus plenty of yummy food, drinks, and even a “beer garden”. Mark your calendars now, so you don’t miss this opportunity to see these beautiful balloons up close and personal.

Take a look at the festival’s Facebook post below…

The address is the Sun ‘n’ Fun Expo Campus, 4175 Medulla Rd., Lakeland, FL.  For more information visit the event’s website HERE.
