Balloon Activities

There are few sights that rival the beauty and serenity of hot air balloons rising into the morning sky or glowing against a Florida sunset. You'll get to see both at the SUN 'n FUN Holiday Fly-In Festival and Car Show!

Friday evening, Dec 3rd, join us for a night of aerial displays and watch the balloons as they inflate against the setting sun and form a majestic foreground for the flying artists in the sky.

Saturday, Dec 4th, the balloons are scheduled to mark the corners of the SUN 'n RUN 5k course, then launch into the sky* in the early morning to kick off a fun day of exciting fun, food, and family activities. The balloons will also be available during the day for tethered rides and photo opportunities. Details soon!


Please contact Tom and Jessica Warren at 813-243-9507 or Space is limited.
