      Great Smoky Mountain Hot Air Balloon Festival

      Join us for a summertime spectacle, as professional balloonists light up the evening sky with a beautiful balloon glow. The sky will be filled with a spectrum of color like never before, against a backdrop of a breathtaking Tennessee sunset. Gates open at 5:00 pm. Advance Parking is 25.00. Tethered rides are now available for Pre sale orders! Tickets are $25.00 per rider, ages 8 and up. No riders under 8 years of age are permitted. Weather permitting, rides will begin at 6pm. In hopes to decrease line times, tethered Rides are sold in BOARDING GROUPS this year. Once we have clearance from the McGhee Tyson Airport, we will begin pre sold ride boarding by group. These groups will be announced "NOW BOARDING" by the DJ's at the festival. VIP Lift off riders will be the first to ride, followed by Boarding Groups A, then B, then C. Weather permitting, additional "Day of" balloon ride sales will be available and sales will begin once all pre sold tickets have boarded. VIP Lift Off! This VIP package includes Parking, Tented Seating for shade and viewing enjoyment, FIRST FLIGHT Tethered Balloon Ride, Commemorative T shirt, Gourmet meal from Dancing Bear Lodge, Beer or Wine and unlimited bottled water.
