The balloons will be taking of from the Sequim Valley Airport each morning of the event around 6:00am, September 1 – 3. Join the fun! You can purchase your one day event pass for $19/person or a three-day pass for $29/person to see the hot air balloons. You can also purchase a hot air balloon ride for $250/person! Tickets are available online HERE.
Plus, on Saturday and Sunday nights, starting at 8:00pm, you’ll want to see the spectacular Twilight in the Olympics balloon glow. There will be a reflection pond the size of a football field for photographic beauty. Watch the balloons glow and fill the night sky as they reflect on the quiet waters. Leading up to the balloon glow there will be street dances, live music, food court, and a wine and beer garden to enjoy.
