Franklin Hot Air Balloon Festival Sets New Date

After severe weather postponed the Franklin Hot Air Balloon Festival in early May, event organizers have set a new date for the festival.

On July 29th, Southern-fare, live music and entertainment for all ages will lead up to a hot air balloon “glow” in the Westhaven community in Franklin, Tenn. The Vanderbilt Health Franklin Hot Air Balloon Festival, a family-friendly, fun-for-all event will take place from 4-8:30pm.

VIP tickets include all-you-can-eat barbecue, two alcoholic beverage tokens, a commemorative T-shirt and designated seating. Kids five and under are free.

If you had a ticket for the May 6th event, your ticket will be honored for the new date.

The event will culminate with the illumination of five hot air balloons at dusk. While rides will not be offered, guests will enjoy up-close views of the giant balloons, live music, and a variety of food trucks. Children can enjoy the designated “KidZone” that will have face-painters, balloon artists, screen printing and other entertainment.Tickets will be limited to 5,000 attendees.
