Hot Air Balloon Festival This Weekend

NWA Daily

Have you ever wanted to see your town from the air? Well, you can this weekend at Northwest Arkansas’s annual hot air balloon festival!

  • Money well spent: SOAR NWA will take place Friday and Saturday (August 26-27) at the Drake Field Airport in south Fayetteville. Tickets range from $15-$25 for adults and $0-$8 for kids, and proceeds go toward providing employment opportunities for people with disabilities. 
  • Up and away: This will be the region’s third annual festival and, as always, will include various aeronautic activities for all ages. There will be a play zone for kiddos, a beer garden for those 21+, and activities like helicopter rides and discovery flights available for booking. Going just to “oo” and “ahh” at the hot air balloons is perfectly acceptable too!
