Weather

If there is inclement weather that prohibits safe flying, the official event update will be posted on the Town of Frederick Facebook page, website, Twitter and Instagram as soon as we are notified by the Hot Air Balloon event producer and FAA. Hot air balloon weather conditions are contingent upon many factors. Cancellation of the morning events can come at any time prior to scheduled lift offs at 6 am. Glow Party activities are rain or shine, however, the balloon "glow" also depends on weather conditions.
