Pahrump Balloon Festival takes place every February at Petrack Park, Pahrump, Nevada. Over 30 hot air balloons from all over the western states make up a colorful display in the skies over Pahrump, a vibrant city, 60 miles (96 km) west of Las Vegas. In addition to ballooning, Pahrump offers hiking, golfing, and winery tours.
Pahrump Hot Air Balloon Festival's program runs for three days, and features Glow in the Park, usually on Friday and Saturday evenings at about 6 pm. Hot air balloon rides are available for the general public. There is also a "Walk inside a balloon," a carnival, a rodeo, and a car show. The festival ends on Sunday afternoon.
