Join us the first weekend in November each year as hot air balloons fill the crisp autumn air. Balloons launch Saturday and Sunday morning, weather permitting. Don’t be shy, pilots love to talk about their hobby and you could even get a chance to help inflate the hot air balloon yourself! After the morning flights, take a stroll through our Historic Walking Tour and History In Bronze, or simply shop the unique downtown merchants found on Main Street. Tap your toes to the tunes of the Artesia High School Band playing alongside balloon pilots during Saturday night’s Fire Concert, or take in a musical performance downtown during the weekend.
