Getting Ready!

Question has been asked and here is the answer: Yes the weather forecast is calling for some rain and maybe a few thunderstorms over the weekend, but that will not stop the Monroe Balloon & Blues Festival!

As in Year’s past we always have always “Weathered” the weather and had a great time!!!

With all of the activities, there is no reason we will stop.

  1. Blues Band stage is in a tent and of course FREE.
  2. A little water does not slow down the Classic Car Show with a special visit from the Planter’s Nutmobile & Oscar Meyer Wienermobile.
  3. Midway will be full blast with unique food, crafts, vendors and activities for the kids.
  4. The Balloon launch may be postponed for a time and called off if there is a danger to people, pilots or the balloons.
  5. Balloon Glow can and has been previously modified to an awesome Fire Show, if wind is too strong.

We will do everything that we can as long as people can remain safe. In short, there may be a few modifications here and there for safety, but we will proceed with the event.
