What not to bring to Balloon Fest

Posted May 26

DO bring these

  • Good shoes! Plan for a day of walking.  Think of it just like a trip to the NC State Fair or your favorite college football game.  The park is more than 25 acres of open land. Wear good walking shoes.
  • Wear sunscreen. And, bring more to re-apply. There is limited shade at the park. Wear a hat.
  • Bring a folding chair(s) and/or a picnic blanket but keep your items small and light.
  • Need a stroller? We strongly suggest one of the small, inexpensive "umbrella" style strollers.

Don't bring these

Please leave these at home:

  • No Coolers
  • No Drones. Only FAA and festival registered operators are permitted. (None permitted.)
  • No Pets (except service animals)
  • No Tents or Canopies
  • No Weapons
