Balloons over RussVegas
This is your opportunity to fly over Russellville with 20 colorful hot air balloons floating together. Rides will be offered
May 2 and 3 with only one flight each day (weather permitting). The cost is $250 per person. Reservations are required
with a $50 deposit. Limited space is available.
You will meet at the Russellville Soccer Complex, 901 Lock & Dam Road, just before sunrise and help as the pilot and crew
inflate the balloon. Flight time in the air is approximately 45 - 60 minutes, but actual length may vary based on the wind
direction, landing opportunities, and weather.
After landing and deflating the balloon, the pilot will perform the traditional initiation for first-time flyers, including the
"Balloonist's Prayer" followed by a champagne ceremony. Then you will return to the Soccer Complex with the pilot and crew
in their chase vehicle.
Each balloon can carry between 2 and 5 passengers, depending on the size of the balloon and the weight of the passengers.
You will need to provide your weight and age when making a reservation. Anyone under 18 years of age must be accompanied
by a parent or guardian. Passengers must weigh less than 240 pounds.
Allow at least 3 hours total time for the entire experience from start to finish. Make your reservations as soon as possible
because space is limited. Book your flight online, or by calling Balloon Festival Network, Inc., at 417-336-6060.
