The balloons are back!

We are getting very excited for the launch of the 2017 Heritage Inn International Balloon Festival.  We're so happy to be the title sponsor for this unique event in High River, our hotel will be the official Balloon Festival Headquarters again this year!

The five-day festival running September 27 - October 1, 2017 features the Hot Air Balloon competition and the Balloon Night Glow. From Thursday, September 28th to Sunday, October 1st, competition flights will take place twice daily at 7:30 am and 5:00 pm. There will be one flight on Sunday morning at 7:30 am. As festival headquarters, the Heritage Inn Hotel & Convention Centre will host flight briefings before each flight competition.

The Balloon Night Glow is not only beautiful it offers a unique opportunity to connect with pilots, learn about the competition, and watch the memorable Balloon Night Glow. Starting at 5:00pm on Friday, September 29th the Balloon Night Glow will host balloons, as well as food trucks. Balloons will glow from 8:00pm-9:00pm. The location for the Balloon Night Glow will be held at Spitzee Elementary School Field (409 Macleod Trail SW, High River) this year. We recommend watching Facebook or Twitter for updates regarding changes due to weather.  Also, come early to find parking!

Competition winners will be presented at the Awards Presentation at noon on Sunday, October 1st at 12:00pm at Sheppard Family Park.
