Mesquite Balloon Festival
January 25 @ 7:30 am - January 27 @ 6:00 pmFree
The last week of January will see the skies surrounding Mesquite filled with dozens of hot air balloons for the annual Mesquite Balloon Festival. This family-friendly weekend of events begins each morning at 7:30 a.m. with balloon launches from the Oasis parking lot and wraps each evening with the nightly 6 p.m. night glows, where pilots light up the night sky by igniting the burners of the massive balloons.
“The Mesquite Balloon Festival is one of the most memorable events in Mesquite each year,” Adderson said. “This year is set to be the largest event yet and is sure to put a smile on everyone’s faces as they see the balloons flying through Mesquite.”
Volunteers are also needed for the event. Each volunteer will receive an event T-shirt, lapel pin and coffee and donuts at the morning launches.
Mesquite Balloon Festival is free and open to the public. For more information and a full schedule of events, or to learn more about volunteering for the event, visit the CasaBlanca website.
