Event Details

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 5-9pm 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. 

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