Can we fly at a balloon festival?
Check with your local balloon company to see if you can get your balloon ride during a nearby festival. Flying at a festival is a unique experience, and is one that you don't want to miss if possible.
Each festival has their own rules, and many do not allow paid passenger rides for several reasons, including FAA restrictions or insurance concerns. Some festivals, however, not only allow passenger flights but encourage spectators to fly by selling balloon rides at the festival.
Preplanning is the key - you'll want to know well in advance if you can fly at the balloon festival you plan to attend.
Famous Balloon Quote:
There's something in a flying horse,
There's something in a huge balloon.
— William Wordsworth, 'Peter Bell,' Prologue. Stanza 1.
Hot air balloons use plain old air for lift. By heating the air inside the balloon, the pilot makes that air less dense (lighter) than the outside air, and the balloon rises. As the internal air cools, the balloon becomes heavier, and descends if the pilot doesn't add more heat.

What happens if a bird flys into a balloon?
It would likely bounce off! Even though a bird wouldn't get that close, it would do no harm to the balloon or the bird. The envelope fabric is much tougher than it might appear. It is possible to fly a balloon with a hole large enough for a man to go through as long as the hole is not at the top of the envelope.
