Skylight Balloon Fest 2024

Relish these three days full of activities, vendors, and, of course, the balloons!

Dates: September 27–28, 2024

Skylight Balloon Fest takes place every September at the River City Community Church Grounds at 16765 Lookout Rd, Selma, Texas. It is a relatively new event that got its start in 2017. The festival is definitely worth a visit with around 15 hot air balloons and over a hundred vendors offering their exceptional goods.

You can go for a tethered balloon ride, watch morning competitions, or see the amazing balloon glow at night. Saturday morning is marked with a mass balloon launch. Witness how balloons get inflated, take off, and land on the field! In addition, four live concerts, food trucks, gellyball, games at vendor booths, acrobatic shows, a Family Fun Zone, and Jumbo Interactive Area Petting Zoo with 20 varieties of animals are waiting for you.

Family Fun Zone offers laser tag, amusement rides, inflatables, and more fun for all ages. Play All Day wristbands are available for $10. Vendors include local artisans and businesses, offering their unique handmade items.

Skylight Balloon Fest offers limited seating, so guests are encouraged to bring their own lawn chairs and blankets. The admission for one adult person is $15, and children aged 3-11 can enter for $10. Kids younger than two years old are admitted for free. The entry is cash only at the gate. Parking near the festival grounds is free.
