It’s an early morning adventure but well worth your time to get out of bed and make the 35-mile drive to enjoy the popular Mesquite Balloon Festival. You’ll find brightly colored balloons filling the crisp, clear blue sky over the Virgin Valley community with the Stars and Stripes balloon leading the way.
If getting up “with the chickens” isn’t your idea of a vacation activity, you can also enjoy a balloon glow at sunset – probably 6 – 7 p.m. – offering an up close walk around the balloons lit by their burners and an opportunity to chat with the pilots.
The event also offers food and family-friendly entertainment for everybody. All activities – including the free balloon watch – are taking place in the south parking lot of the Casa Blanca Resort and Casino. For additional information, visit http://www.hotairballoon.com/Mesquite-Balloon-Festival.
