Say goodbye to the summer with a signature annual event of The Callaway Gardens—The Hot Air Balloon Festival. Witness over 30 balloons taking off in the sky during Labor Day Weekend and try other fun activities in the park. Admission varies from $14.95 (one-day, children) to $69.95 (three-day, adult pass).
Festival's program begins on Friday with the magical Balloon Glow, where balloons resemble giant lanterns illuminating the night. On Saturday, there is an array of family-friendly events and beach activities at Robin Lake Beach. Live music, food, and a large Kids Zone are just some of the attractions of the Hot Air Balloon Festival at Callaway Gardens. Explore the 2,500 acres (1,012 ha) park with dozens of hiking and biking trails.
