Up, Up and Away
The Villages Balloon Festival 2021, sponsored by The Villages Polo Club, will be held on February 5 and 6. Balloon ascensions are planned for early morning and later afternoons when the weather conditions are favorable for flight. Balloon Glows are scheduled each evening when the balloons return to the field after their ascensions. All activity is subject to the weather.
Spectators in vehicles will not be allowed to view the event without purchasing a ticket. All spectators must purchase tickets in advance or at the gate. Every adult attendee will be given a wristband upon arrival which must be worn while on the event grounds. This wristband will allow them to come and go to the event grounds on the same day.
The main covered pavilion provides easy access for wheelchairs from Fly Me To The Food alley, as well as great views of both fields. Security measures include bag checks. No animals (except service animals), contraband, alcohol or outside food and drinks are permitted.
Cost ranges from $15 and up. Location: N. Buena Vista Blvd., in The Villages. For more information, call 352-750-7656 or visit TheVillagesBalloonFestival.com.
