Founder’s Day (The Quiet Launch)
For our last flight operation of the event we pay homage to when the Balloon Stampede was launched in the wheat fields – There is no music, announcements, just silence as we launch into a quiet morning sky.
Spectating and attending the event is absolutely free! Tickets are not required.
The majority of flights during the event are dedicated to our valued sponsors, however, we do offer a very limited number of patron sponsorships to the public. These flights are available, by the couple, at $600 and will be scheduled for the morning of Friday May 12, 2023 only.
All passengers must be at least 18 years of age or older. If you would like to join our interest list please complete this form. Interested parties will be contacted on a first come, first serve basis. A $50 non-refundable deposit is required at the time of booking.
