Apache Balloon Fest is an annual three-day celebration held in late August at Apache Casino Hotel in Lawton. The twenty hot air balloons are definitely the main highlight of the fest. Just take into account that ballooning is always weather permitting. Anyways, you'll find tons of fun beyond traditional tethered balloon rides and balloon glows. The festival program boasts a range of family-friendly activities such as a carnival midway, pony rides, face painting, kids zone, craft village, food trucks and beverages, live music, and more.
The hours of the fest are 5 pm–11 pm on Friday, 7 am–11 pm on Saturday, and 7 am–9 pm on Sunday. The admission is free.
