The Franklin Hot Air Balloon Classic is located in the beautiful Harlinsdale Farm in Franklin, TN. This year’s event will include live music, a Kids zone, VIP tent, Food trucks, Craft vendors and a spectacular Hot Air Balloon Glow at dusk.
No. The event is an evening glow, meaning all the balloons remain on the ground during the event allowing guests to get up close and personal with these gentle giants. It’s a pretty awesome sight to see them all lit up in the evening sky.
The balloons begin to inflate at dusk and glow for around 45 minutes. This means balloons are usually up from about 8:30 PM to 9:15 PM, conditional on weather.
No. Tickets will not be available for sale at the gate.
