The All Ohio Balloon Fest will kick off next weekend.
The first All Ohio Balloon Fest was held back in 1975, and it’s been going strong ever since. Each August, thousands of visitors of all ages gather at the Union County Airport in Marysville to enjoy live music, activities, food vendors, sky jumping, and rides in helicopters, airplanes, and hot air balloons.
A variety of hot air balloons will participate in the festival, including some familiar character that the kids are bound to love. The fest is a non-profit event and all proceeds are donated to the Hope Center in Marysville.
This year’s festival will take place August 12-14. Tickets sold at the gate are cash only, or you can purchase tickets in advance through Eventbrite. Admission is free for kids 10 and under on Friday and Saturday. Visitors are encouraged to bring their own chairs or blankets to watch the hot air balloons and live music.
When it comes to taking to the skies, there are a few different ride options. You can opt to ride in a tethered Hot Air Balloon, a helicopter, or a plane. You can learn all about the different kinds of rides, check out the line-up for entertainment, and get more info in general by visiting AllOhioBalloonFest.com.
