Hot Air Balloon Glow

It’s a highlight of the Vernon Winter Carnival’s opening ceremonies. 

Plan to be part of this exciting launch of the 54th Vernon Winter Carnival.  The balloonists come from miles away to entertain our Carnival participants.  Don’t miss this magical evening.  Dress warmly and help us countdown to the start of Carnival. 

Don’t be late as the balloons can only stay inflated as long as the weather permits.  View the balloons up close, meet the pilots and ask questions you’ve always wanted to ask.  The experts are here and they love showing off their balloons.  Handicapped parking only in Polson Park.  This event is weather permitting.

Time:                     5:30 – 6:30 p.m. – this event is weather permitting

Location:                Polson Park Oval

                               Handicapped parking only in Polson Park
