King Valley Balloon Festival Flights
Experience the very best view of the King Valley. Join our friends at Goldrush Ballooning to ascend with a mass of hot air balloons on Friday, Saturday or Sunday morning.
You can experience this amazing visual spectacle from the air! Flights with the fiesta balloons are a once in a lifetime opportunity. The King Valley Doctor, a low level wind prevalent most mornings, makes for excellent balloon flying conditions in the greater King Valley.
You’ll be thoroughly briefed by the balloon’s pilot before takeoff, float over the valley with the feista ballooning participants, and celebrate the flight with a Prosecco breakfast at Brown Brothers upon your return.
Suitable ages 7 – 97. From $395 per person.
