Food, Fun, Entertainment
See a sky full of hot air balloons at the annual Sandy Hot Air Balloon Festival. The sunrise balloon launches happen both mornings. The first wave launch at 7:00 am and the second wave at 7:30 am (wind and weather permitting) at Storm Mountain Park, 11400 South 1000 East, directions.
On Saturday evening, the festivities move to the South Towne Promenade in front of Sandy City Hall, 10000 South 173 west with the balloon glow beginning around 8:00 pm. Tasty food choices will be available for purchase and enjoy an evening of entertainment on the festival stage.
Bring the whole family to see the balloons fly and at dusk on Saturday enjoy food and entertainment and the glow of the balloons in the night sky.
Some pilots may need volunteers to help crew their hot air balloons. Come early, find a pilot that needs help and experience the thrill of helping crew a hot air balloon.
Also, take pictures and video at the festival and enter our photo/video contest for your chance at winning prizes. We will award 1st, 2nd and 3rd place plus a Mayor's Choice and an award for video.
