Update: Here is some footage of me riding in a balloon with aeronaut Rusty Kaim on Saturday morning. Stay tuned for behind the scenes footage of the crew preparing us for flight.
Since 1987, the Big Bend Balloon Bash has provided an unforgettable experience for sport hot air balloon pilots, sponsors, vendors, and families. Over the three-day Labor Day Weekend, each day offers the chance to create and capture memories unique to the high mountain desert region of Alpine, Texas, and the Big Bend.
Come join us this year for another fun-filled weekend of aerial displays and special events.
