Celebrate your Labor Day Weekend at the 2016 Labor Day Lift Off

Guaranteed to be a weekend full of fun for the whole family!


Start your morning off right with a hot air balloon mass ascension of over 50 balloons accompanied by breakfast and drinks from local vendors.

Activities will continue throughout the day with skydiving demonstrations, wakeboarding exhibitions, paddle boarding, live entertainment, and beer gardens.

Wrap up your visit at Memorial Park over the Labor Day weekend with a hot air balloon glow at dusk.
