It’s time to get carried away. The second annual Bayou Road Balloon Festival will take to the skies from November 9 to 11 in Sidney D. Torres Memorial Park. Each evening of the event multiple hot air balloon will be inflated for tethered rides (as long as the weather cooperates). The effect in the night sky is a a spectacular, magical glow.
The festival runs for threes days. On the Friday the hours are 4pm to 10pm. On Saturday the festival runs from 10am to 10pm and on Sunday from 10am to 8pm. The balloons will be up from 5pm to 7pm each evening (weather permitting). Tethered rides are $20 per person, cash—to be paid at the festival.
Attendees are welcome to wander from basket to basket, meet the pilots, take photos and ask questions. In the event that the weather does not permit the balloon glow portion of the festival, the pilots will perform a ‘Ring of Fire’.
Of course, the balloons are only part of this lively event. There’s going to be plenty of live music on hand too. Bands include The Band of Heathens, VooDoo Gumbo, Epic, Remedy, Blackwater Brass, and Noisewater. A full
is available on the Bayou Road Balloon Festival website. A carnival will also be set up on the grounds, presented by Crescent City Amusements. It will run for the full festival hours each day.
