The skies above Urbana will be bright with color on Friday and Saturday evening when 12 hot air balloons take to the sky at 6 p.m. during the Balloon Fest – A Hot Air Affair at Grimes Field.

Join the festivities and enjoy an evening of fun for the whole family. Food trucks will offer a variety of food, a DJ will spin the latest tunes and the Flying Lab will be open for inspection.

Bring a lawn chair and marvel at the balloon glow scheduled for 8-8:30 p.m.

All balloon activities are governed by the weather and we are looking for a sunny, windless weekend!
