The El Paso Balloon Festival has been bringing free family-friendly fun and dozens of hot air balloons to West Texas for the past 30 years. This balloon rally attracts hot air balloons from all over the country and visitors who come to marvel at the colorful spectacle. Festival events include champagne tastings, trail rides, hayrides, lasso lessons, contests, and more. For adults, the venue contains a saloon when it’s time to cool down. This year’s festival holds a patriotic theme in conjunction with Memorial Day, and special events will be held to honor past and present soldiers.
