Event Details

The Frederick in Flight Saturday Balloon Lift has been cancelled due to weather but the Saturday evening Glow Party and the Sunday morning launch are still taking place as planned in Centennial Park (630 8th St.).

Join the Town of Frederick as we celebrate the many forms of flight in June with a hot air balloon lift, glow party, and tons of fun for the whole family! The balloons lift at daybreak, weather permitting.

The Glow Party will take place on Saturday evening from 6-10pm at Centennial Park and will feature live music, food vendors, beer and wine garden, kids activities, and hot air balloons candlesticking and glowing (weather permitting). In addition, we are very excited to partner with the Carbon Valley Relay for Life to host their silent auction in the beer garden. 

Please be aware that Colorado Boulevard is currently closed, so take a look at the detour route map and plan ahead! Parking is available on side streets as well as in the school parking lots. Please respect our neighbors and be sure to not block driveways or alley ways when parking in the neighborhood.

This event requires a lot of work to get it off the ground - consider volunteering to help make it run more smoothly!
