Balloons over Waikato's 2017 Festival is one not to miss!
For 5 days experience the amazing site of 20-30 hot air balloons ascending through the Waikato sunrise at around 7am! Hot air balloons will inflate and take off weather permitting from Innes Common, Hamilton Lake each day.
Join us Thursday morning as we offer free breakfast for the first 2000 people thanks to WEL Energy Trust in association with Sanitarium.
Friday evening will see the balloons visit multiple towns including Tokoroa and Te Kuiti where there will be food stalls, entertainment and if weather allows, the balloons will inflate. Hot air balloons will also visit Garden Place, Hamilton City, for an orchestrated basket burn to music, family activities, markets and a live band.
Make sure you don't miss the main event - Hamilton's biggest night out, at the ZURU Nightglow on the Saturday night, where you can enjoy 5 hours of family entertainment, live bands on stage, an orchestrated hot air balloon glow show to music, finishing with the best fireworks display in town at the University of Waikato!
