CAN I JUST GET A DRINK PLEASE!!!!!!!
CRAFT BEER, WINE, AND MORE BEER Yes, for the over 90% of you who requested beer and wine in a recent poll we conducted, you get what you asked for. And we bumped it up a notch offering Local Craft beer with exclusive limited batches even being offered throughout the weekend. Red Wine, White WIne, we have that as well!!!!! We even have the stuff you drank in college..... well maybe not that cheap..... but your typical domestics will be available as well!!!!!! Please Drink responsibly. LET US ALL HAVE AN UNDERSTANDING: WE WILL REPEAT!!!!! Although we hope that this years event will be the perfect weekend.... beautiful weather, not a feeling of wind to be found........... THIS DOES NOT MEAN THE BALLOONS WILL PERFORM!!!! We say this in bold because although on the ground the sun is out, not a cloud in the sky, and no wind to be felt for miles on the ground....... that does not mean that 100ft up in the air, the wind is blowing hard enough preventing the balloons from going up . This is the reality of a Hot Air Balloon. SAFETY IS OUR NUMBER ONE PRIORITY, for both you the guest, and the pilots who fly these beautiful pieces of art. Trust us when we say, we want them going all the time, and they may, but sometimes mother nature has other ideas. This sometimes is the reality of any Balloon festival. No Refunds, for any reason will be given. If you ask us for one, we will hand you this exact memo, and have you re read it. SAFETY FIRST!!!!! We have plenty of other activities, performances and things going on to make this experience a great one...... and heck even a great discount for all who purchase in advance. If you want to increase your odds in seeing Hot Air Balloons, We highly recommend again purchasing the full weekend passes. One last thing, balloons going up is a minute by minute decision. One hour they will be up, and the next minute they will have to come down. If you are wondering why...... we can safely say it has to do with the safety of everyone :) We will do all we can (windless dances) in order for them to get back up in the air :)
