The Louisville skyline will host a birthday party of gigantic proportions for the 10th anniversary of the Bluegrass Balloon Festival, September 25 – 27, 2009. The celebration includes a 90 foot Meijer birthday cake and Chuggles, the crowd-pleasing Dean’s Milk balloon! Pilots from across the United States and Canada will descend on Louisville for the largest event of its kind in Kentucky. The festival offers something for everyone from the mass ascension in the early morning light to the magical radiance of balloons aglow at night.
Meijer and Dean’s present the Bluegrass Balloon Festival (formerly the Adam Matthews Balloon Festival). The sights and sounds will lift your spirit and deliver fun for the entire family! You won’t want to miss the 70+ balloons, five balloon events, Kids’ Fun Zone, Art Festival, music, food and so much more! The Bluegrass Balloon Festival is held at historic Bowman Field, the country’s oldest continually operating airport.
