    Default Hot Air Balloon Festival

    My son is the airport manager at the Immokalee Regional Airport. He informed me that the airport and the Seminole Casino will be sponsoring a hot air balloon air show at the airport on April 14th and 15th. Free admission including country singers and shows and exhibits. He told me they will have separate parking for the motorcycles by a hanger. My wife and I will be attending this event on Saturday. Let me know if you will be attending so we can meet up. I attached the website address for more info

    Would like to see the balloons in the morning and late afternoon plus listen to some jazz.

    It will be my birthday weekend and I was looking for something different.

    This is for sure on my radar.....

    Thanks Steve for the info.....I will let you know soon. If we come, it will be in the car though.

    Bill, if you click on the "event schedule", they have jazz and blues and all different acts. I thought the same thing thing at first. I'm trying to talk the wife into this, it would be an early start to see all the balloons, and the Ride for Kids is Sunday. Choices, choices.
