Tethered rides may be available at the balloonists discretion during both days of the Glow beginning at around 5:00 PM.

Balloon rides will be available for purchase at the balloonists discretion for $250 beginning Friday afternoon. BALLOON RIDES ARE NOT AVAILABLE IN THE SPECIALTY BALLOONS. All rides (tethered or untethered) are first come, first served and may be cancelled due to weather.

Please Note: The St. Patrick’s Balloon Fest & Glow entirely depends on the weather. The St. Patrick’s Festival Committee, Irish Balloon Festival organizers, and individual balloonists closely monitor the weather. The most up to date weather announcements will be posted on their Facebook page,  Irish Balloon Festival. If the weather conditions are too windy or storms are forecast, the take off will be postponed or cancelled until conditions are acceptable. We love our balloonists. Their safety is our primary concern.
