BALLOON LAUNCHES

The Monroe Balloon and Blues Festival is a great way to watch Balloons floating across the gorgeous green landscape of Green County Wisconsin.

Watch Air Air Balloon Launches taking place and enjoy the activities of the midway, including outstanding food, beer, and shop many other vendors all while listening to some of the best Blues bands around.

BALLOON GLOW

The Fairgrounds Balloon Glows is an event that features hot-air-balloons being inflated after dark (Watch Video of Glow). This special activity offers viewers a spectacle of fire and color unlike anything else you’re likely to see on a warm summer evening in Southern Wisconsin (or anywhere else for that matter). Hot air balloons stand like over-grown Chinese lanterns against the night sky, providing a breathtaking new perspective on the world of ballooning.

Friday evening at 6:00 p.m. Hot Air Balloon Launch
Friday evening at 8:30 p.m. Hot Air Balloon Glow at Fairgrounds

*Please note that flights may be postponed due to weather concerns such as wind speeds, rain, lightning, etc.. If air speed is too high between ground level and the heights that the balloons will travel, the launch time may be delayed to ensure the safety of our balloonists, as well as for the public.
