Frederick in Flight Flies for Seventh Time

Frederick in Flight

The seventh annual Frederick in Flight will take place Friday June 23, Saturday June 24 and Sunday June 25 with morning hot air balloon lifts, and a Saturday evening Glow Party all happening in Centennial Park (630 8th St.).

Over thirty hot air balloons and parachutists will fill the sky as soon as the sun comes up on Friday, Saturday and Sunday mornings at Centennial Park. After the Saturday morning lift, children can enjoy Story Time and a magic show. There will also be tethered hot air balloon rides courtesy of Re/MAX Momentum and a cow drop courtesy of Chick-fil-A. Heavenly Mini Donuts will be on hand to offer coffee and tasty treats for purchase.

The Glow Party beginning at 5 p.m. in Centennial Park will be complete with live music, children’s activities, food and a beer, cider and wine garden managed by the Carbon Valley Chamber of Commerce. When the sun goes down, balloon baskets will ‘candle-stick’ and show off their flames and hot air balloons will glow from the ground. Carbon Valley Relay for Life will be on site hosting a silent auction to benefit the American Cancer Society.

Please be advised all activities are weather permitting.
