More than 50 pilots from across the country will be showing off their hot air balloons during a 3 day festival that begins today.

Area casinos are sponsoring the event.

Among the activities planed for this weekend are balloon races and fly overs.

Attendees will also have the opportunity to lift off in a tethered hot air balloon.

“If you've never seen a group of hot air balloons do a balloon glow...it's very entertaining. It's great, it's very cheap family fun, and I recommend every one come out and bring the kids,” balloon bash organizer Mark Bowie said.
