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:
Previous to this time I had never even a balloon except from a distance. Being interested in their construction, I was about to institute a thorough examination of all its parts, when the aeronaut announced that all was ready. He inquired whether I desired to go up alone, or he should accompany me. My desire, if frankly expressed, would have been not to go up at all; but if I was to go, company was certainly desirable. With an attempt at indifference, I intimated that he might go along.
— George Armstrong Custer, while a Captain in the cavalry. Regards order to go aloft in one of Thaddeus Lowe's balloons to observe the movements of the Confederate forces. Quoted in 'Son of the Morning Star.' 1862.
