Hot Air Balloons Send Our Spirits Soaring

September 15th, 2013 by Kristie Rosset

Legends Balloon Rally in Hot Springs ARHot air balloons inspire me. They encourage me to look up and outside the boundaries of everyday life.  They are colorful and nudge the child in me to play. Their majesty and beauty remind me to return to my creator more often. Ultimately, they fill me with joy and wonder and celebration – just the way I want to live every day of my life.

And, once a year we get to experience these wonderful hot air balloons in Hot Spring at the Legends Balloon Rally. We get to escape for a couple of days to look at life differently, enjoy the grandeur of the balloons and visit with other folks who also love hot air balloons.

The Hot Springs AR Balloon Festival is Sept. 27-28 at Memorial Field Airport. Events are planned for each day and conclude Saturday night with the Balloon Glow followed with a concert by Country entertainer Travis Tritt. According to Steve Arrison, CEO of Visit Hot Springs, “The balloon glows are spectacular. All 25 balloons will be gathered behind the music stage, and the sight of them glowing from the inside is really something to see. This has become one of the most popular events at our rallies.” The Friday night concert by Styx and Saturday night concert by Travis Tritt are free and open to the public. Bring your lawn chairs.

We encourage you to make this your Fall getaway, come to the Rally and stay at Lookout Point. We’ll share the experience with you. Rooms can be reserved online or by calling 501.525.6155501.525.6155.

Hot Air Balloons Take Over Hot Springs September Skies

If you’ve got people in your life full of hot air – the Legends Balloon Rally

Legends Balloon Rally

might be just the event to enjoy together, September 21-22, 2012. The Rally is a great place to work off some of that energy, to share a few laughs and to experience the beauty and splendor of the balloons. Hot Air Balloons always elicit a feeling of exhilaration and pure delight. In all sincerity, the rally is a  wonderful way to spend time with family and friends.

The Legends Balloon Rally has been a part of the end of summer/beginning of fall happenings in Hot Springs since 2008. Every year the event brings visitors from outside the area and folks from Hot Springs. The Rally includes hot air balloon competitions, a car show, a free concert and plenty of time to gaze into the sky and enjoy the balloons with the array of bright colors.

One of my favorite parts of the Rally is the Balloon Glow Friday and Saturday night around dusk. At that time of evening the colorful and majestic balloons are tethered to the ground for the unforgettable balloon glow display. The evening light elicits a beautiful addition to the luminosity of 25 or more balloons. It truly is a sight to behold – the result is astonishing!

After spending the night at the inn and enjoying a gourmet breakfast and a cup of our special blend coffee, you’ll be ready for the Rally, which is held at Hot Springs Memorial Airport. For more information, contact or call our office at 501.525.6155 or visit the Legends Balloon Rally.
