UPDATE for next year: February 14,15,16, 2020
We are getting excited and so should you – Balloons and Tunes is coming back to Kanab, Ut. in just a few short weeks! 50 Hot Air Balloons and a dozen bands over 3 days. Feb. 15-17, 2019
Balloons lifting off against the red cliffs of Kanab is spectacular!
February is still chilly in Kanab but generally fairly mild. Early morning lift offs for the Balloon crews can be frosty, but they tell me that’s how they like it.
Hard to say what is my favorite –
Hot Air Balloon lift offs!
Bands battling it out for 2 solid days!
Balloon Glow down Center Street at night!
Personal lantern launch!
Most events happen Friday and Saturday, but the Balloons and their crews have a final launch Sunday morning. Check out their website at: http://www.visitsouthernutah.com/Kanab-Balloons-Tunes-Roundup-site

Mark your Calendars, Feb. 15-17, make your reservations early and we will see you there!
Pilots will fly their balloons each morning at sunrise at the Coral Cliffs Golf Course just east of Kanab on Friday, Saturday and Sunday (weather permitting).
Battle of the Bands will take place on Friday and Saturday; winner takes $2,500 second place $1,500 and third place $1,000.
Battle of the Bands will begin Friday evening and continue Saturday during the street festival. There will be fire pits and standing heaters throughout the vendor and crowd areas.
Saturday evening the Balloon Glow will take place at 7pm and the winner of the Battle of the Bands will perform. This is where all the hot air balloons fill up on the street and glow for the crowds! Pure Magic!
Buy a lantern at a vendor booth for the Lantern Launch following the Balloon Glow and watch the night sky filled with wishing lanterns floating skyward. Awesome! This is a one-of-a-kind balloon event in scenic red rock country! Don’t miss the most magical winter event in all of Southern Utah!
