The Hot Air Balloon Festival in Plano has been a long-standing tradition. Look up in the sky in late September and you’ll be treated to a display of slowly floating colors. Two things happen immediately when these balloons are spotted. People point and then they smile.
Hot air balloons have a certain magic about them. They bring a bit of happiness to our day when they’re spotted. The hot air balloon festival of Plano is bringing that magic to Legacy West today.
Soar on for an uplifting photo in their “Big Sky” balloon! The Plano Balloon Festival team will be on-site to greet and answer questions about the InTouch Credit Union Plano Balloon Festival coming up September 20-22, 2019.
They’ll also be there giving away two free tickets to each person who snaps a selfie between 11:00 a.m. and Noon (limited quantity while they last during this promotional event).
The Big Sky Balloon photo op is located directly across from Neighborhood Goods in Legacy West on Windrose Avenue.

History of Modern Hot Air Balloon
When thinking of today’s hot air balloon, the first image that may come to mind is the Wizard flying away from OZ while Dorothy tries desperately to catch her ride back home.
The first of the modern hot-air balloons flew in 1953 and since then there has been a remarkable resurgence of hot-air activity. This has largely been brought about by the marriage of two technologies – lightweight and airtight nylon fabrics, and new powerful burners which burn liquid propane to heat the balloon.
All over the world colorful flotillas now dot the sky – including many ingenious special shape balloons in the form of everything from beer bottles to flying cows. Nowadays thousands of people throughout the world enjoy the sights and pleasures of going ballooning.
It truly is a sight like no other and something everyone who can really should experience once in their life.
Take a look at last year’s festival and see why this year’s event promises to be a wild ride!
