The Falls City Hot Air Balloon Festival is back for 2021.
After a break in 2020 due to COVID, the festival which resurrected from year’s past in 2019, the much anticipated festival is set to return June 19-20 at Brenner Field.
According to the Falls City Chamber and festival organizers, the festival will have a few changes from 2019 layout in order to accommodate more parking on site. Last year a shuttle service transported people to the launch site, but this year more parking is available at Brenner Field. A shuttle service will be available for those campers at Stanton Lake.
In addition there will be food trucks, live music and other activities, including a Fly-in Breakfast by the Partners in Education and the Jaycees.
Also a change will be the selling of tickets due to the large number of attendance in 2019, where by some estimates at least 6,000 people attended over the festival weekend.
