Parties, Festivals, and School Programs

Looking for something unique and interesting to bring to your event? Michiana Balloon Rides has just the thing for you, a Hot Air Balloon.  We have many options to fit any event budget and need.  All we need is a space big enough for the balloon and, as any event organizer hopes for, good weather.

Balloons operate when the winds are at their lightest, which means we setup two hours before sunset or at sunrise and go till two hours after sunrise. During the day it is unsafe to operate a balloon, and we are very safety conscious.  We will not push the weather and have conservative operating limitations. We have full balloon insurance and can easily name your event under our policy.

We offer different opportunities for events.

Balloon flight ($500-$900+travel): Show off the true awe of flight as we fly over the area from your event.  We take 2 to 4 passengers from your event with the pilot. These can be sponsors, event board members, or even raffle ticket winners.

Balloon Glow ($450+travel): We come to your event and setup a static display.  When the sun goes down we use our burner to light up the sky in beautiful colors.  The crowd loves this display of light at night.  This can be combined with the flight at a discount.

School Programs(contact for price): As a current teacher I know how awesome it is to show kids new things.  We will work with you to show off how a hot air balloon works and operates.  If the weather does not work for a full balloon inflation we will work with you on still creating a program that will awe your students and teach them about Science and History.
