Hot Air Ballooning Events and Meets
This is where you can get information on where to see balloons in our region, or even join in.

Check also the Year Planner link for the complete calendar (all subject to confirmation, of course).

The late date for entries is a week prior to the meet. This is so we can sort out the gas ordering and any housekeeping with the sites but if you have left it too late, don't worry, a late entry may be possible at an increased fee level and we will try and fit you in.

See also www.balloonevents.org for a worldwide listing.
Meet information and link to entry forms will appear here when available.
