“Up, up and away in my beautiful, my beautiful balloon.” We cannot promise you love like the 5th Dimension did in this classic song, but the Plano Balloon Festival does promise plenty of family fun next weekend.
Are you ready to sail away at the Plano Balloon Festival, then NDG can help you with a pair of free tickets to the annual event fans come from around the state to enjoy.

The major draw for this Balloon Festival will be the 40 magnificent, colorful, hot air balloons. Fun for all ages is the Special Shapes that attend the festival. The 12 featured Special Shapes that will be participating this year include Rocket the Flying Squirrel, The New Tweetie, Claw’D, Bimbo Bear, High Kitty, Neptuno, American Rocket, TeAmo, Kermie, Simba, Shamrock, and the always popular High Jack.
The KLUV Main Stage will feature concerts on Friday and Saturday night, with the Good Question Band performing on Saturday night looking like one to not miss. They are described as being, “in the classic style of great horn bands like Earth, Wind and Fire, The Commodores, Chicago, Kool and The Gang, and many more before them.”
