Referred by:  long story


Add'l Comments: I will get yall VIP parking passes that is on the festival field. The pilot tent is away from the public and secure. Would like for yall to have appearances Thursday through Sunday evening.

Gates open at 4 pm each day except Thursday SNSK  and that day its 5 pm. The balloons will arrive and inflate around 6 pm each day. Sunset is 8:15 each day and gates close at 10pm. I think most folks will show up around 6 pm each day except Thursday, the special needs folks will be there around 5 pm. Yall were a huge hit last year! We expect around 25k over the weekend.
