St. Patrick’s Balloon Fest & Glow

Friday, March 10th

Light up your weekend starting on the afternoon of Friday, March 10th as balloons take to the air at Dublin Civitan Fairgrounds located at 2530 Hwy 257.

This year’s featured specialty balloons are Tweety Bird, a cowboy, and spaceship!

Bask in the beauty of the balloons glowing beginning at sunset, around 6:30 PM.

Get out of this world with a free showing of Space Jam, when the stars come out on Friday, March 10th on a massive outdoor screen courtesy of the Dublin-Laurens County Recreation Authority.

Saturday, March 11th

The fun takes off again on Saturday, March 11th with a morning and afternoon balloon launch, followed by another Balloon Glow in the evening. Get fired up when live music takes to the stage Saturday night.

Soar to new heights of fun with bouncy houses and rides for children both days! Concessions will also be onsite.

Up, Up, & Away!

Admission to the Balloon Fest & Glow is free.

Tethered rides may be available at the balloonist's discretion during both days of the Glow beginning at around 4 PM.

Balloon rides will be available for purchase at the balloonist's discretion for $200 beginning at 7 AM on Saturday. All rides (tethered or untethered) are first-come, first-served, and may be canceled due to weather.

Please Note: The St. Patrick’s Balloon Fest & Glow entirely depends on the weather. If the weather conditions are too windy or storms are forecast, the take-off will be postponed or canceled until conditions are acceptable. We love our balloonists. Their safety is our primary concern.
