The fourth annual Pahrump Hot Air Balloon Festival returns to Petrack Park Feb. 24-26. The three-day family-friendly festival will fill the Pahrump skies with more than 30 colorful hot air balloons from the western states. The event also features a carnival with midway games, live entertainment, tasty bites and vendors for all ages to enjoy.

Guests can also enjoy views of Pahrump from up above with tethered hot air balloon rides. Make sure to also check out the Balloon Glow Light Show that will illuminate the park on Friday and Saturday night.

Admission to the festival is free, guests can purchase tethered balloon rides for $10 and carnival wristbands for $20 presale or $25 during the days of the event. Guests also have the option to buy VIP field pass during the Balloon Glow Show where they have access to the field before anyone else and can get an up close and personal view.
