A Balloon Festival is a great event that can trigger and open up our childlike wonders, as we see the fascinating sight of Hot Air Balloons floating high up in the air. Who wouldn’t get captivated and bedazzled at the sight of colorful hot air balloons as they rise up slowly in the sky? Some adults would even pay more just to ride on one of those balloons and experience the exhilarating ride. That unforgettable moment will surely be another item ticked off the bucket list.
Each year, thousands of spectators from different locations gather to witness the exciting Annual Balloon festival at Spokane Valley fest, as hundreds of vibrant colored Hot Air Balloon are soar up above and beyond high altitudes.
This is why my family and I would make it a point to witness this spectacular event. We wouldn’t even dare miss this, because it’s becoming more of like a family tradition now. I’ve even booked a ticket for the most electrifying festival of the year. One of the most exciting things to see at the Spokane Valley Fest aside from the launching of the hot air balloons are the series of events that keeps us entertained all weekend long.
The main event kicks off with a Hearts of Gold Parade on Friday Evening. Then comes the highlight of the festival which spikes up the excitement even more as they launch the colorful balloons. You can feel the growing exhilaration in the air, followed by screams and claps. I’ve captured good pictures of these balloons as they ascend slowly up in the night sky. They look so great that I’ve used some of them as wallpapers for my phone and my computer.
The fun doesn’t stop there. It’s actually getting started. After the balloon launching, there’s a 5k or 10k Color Run Marathon to fight the cause of Hunger. I heard there are big prizes at stakes this year thanks to one major Sponsors, Revive, (AC), known as the best air conditioning repair and maintenance companies in Spokane.
Motorists and bike enthusiasts will feast on the eye candies in the Classic Car Show. It will surely be a good venue for them to get the latest updates on the industry and win exciting prizes from the other contests that they can join such as the Car and Motor Stereo Contest and the Pinup Girl Competition.
There is also a huge playground and bouncy castles for kids to keep them entertained while adults are busy. They can also ride on the Balloons with an adult to supervise them.
Of course any event won’t be as festive and lively without great music. And for that, they have set up three different stages on various location to keep you company with great nonstop music and entertainment all weekend long.
So if you’re family is up for a weekend of pure fun. There’s no better festival in Spokane to Sign up on than the Spokane Valley Fest. Special thanks to Revive for being one of the major contributors through your generous sponsorship.
