Springville Balloon Fest is the main highlight of the annual Springville Art City Days, the major event in the city located 7 mi (11 km) from Provo, Utah. Come at 6:30 am on Saturday to watch dozens of colorful balloons lift off from the lawn of Cherry Creek Elementary. Another highlight of Springville Balloon Fest is the Orville Anderson Cup Competition, where balloon pilots compete to show off their skills. The two-day festival has free admission.
Guests can bring their own food, blankets, or lawn chairs to watch the balloons launch early in the morning. They can also experience tethered rides and participate in a lottery. Kids can enjoy free face painting and other entertainment.
