With cooler weather, it’s the perfect time to enjoy the aerial beauties at the 2018 InTouch Credit Union Plano Balloon Festival. From Friday, September 21 through Sunday, September 23, over 45 amazing balloons are expected to paint Plano skies and landscape. The fun begins on Friday at 4 p.m. in Oak Point Park (see map).
The 3-day Festival has so much to offer…from balloon glows at twilight, live concerts on two stages (the KLUV Main Stage and the KDFW Fox 4 Community Stage) and scrumptious fair-food.
The Festival also features fly-in balloon competitions and several Races and Walks (a Half Marathon, a 10K, a 5K and a 1K Fun Run/Walk) to really get your pulse pumping! Another popular attraction for balloon-lovers are the Tethered Rides offered at a nominal cost. Other features include:
