HSMAI Gold Award Winner | Gala Award for Best Special Event

One of the most popular events in the Texas Hill Country comes to Horseshoe Bay Resort each spring.  Balloons over Horseshoe Bay Resort is the region’s only annual hot air balloon festival. Each year, thousands of balloon enthusiasts from across Texas arrive to watch hot air balloons glow and ascend over the Hill Country terrain. In 2016, more than 8,000 attended the Balloon Glow Finale making it one of the most photographed events in Central Texas.

The annual event is an ideal draw for thousands of families. This year enjoy special shaped Balloons Tom and Jerry  and on Saturday see the Balloons ascend into the Hill Country sky during the morning session and on Saturday night (evening session) enjoy the ultimate balloon glow! Plus enjoy live music on Saturday night featuring Brandon Alan and Austin’s own Bob Schneider
