Hot Air Balloon Festival at Night! Kanab, Utah

Hot Air Balloon Festival at Night!  Kanab, Utah

Balloons and Tunes is on it’s way, Hooray! Kanabs annual Hot Air Balloon Festival and Battle of the Bands is coming Feb 15 and 16, 2019. Kanab, Utah. This is becoming one of my favorite events of the entire year.

Who doesn’t love beautiful Hot Air Balloons rising against Red Rock cliffs and bright blue skies? (see my former post on Balloons and Tunes) But Saturday night is when this Festival really shines!

Food, music and Balloons. The Police Shut down the main highway thru town for about 5 blocks. The Balloonist line their baskets down the center of the street. Weather permitting, they inflate their balloons but stay on the ground. Weather not permitting, they don’t inflate balloons but still flare the gas burners. Oh glory! It is so cool! Heat, light, huge balloons, the roar of the burners. Ya just gotta feel it.

The winning band from the last two days of “Battling it out” gets to play in the big tent on Main Street for a couple of hours while we enjoy the food and booths.

And then it gets a little better… Wishing lanterns. For every child who saw Disney’s Tangled and didn’t think all the floating lanterns were real.. THEY ARE!

Here is my sister launching her wishing lantern with hundreds of others. It is so beautiful.  I wish you all get to come this year! You are gonna love it.
