Southwest Floridians and visitors alike will get the view of a lifetime at Seminole Casino Immokalee’s inaugural “Balloons Over Paradise” Festival at Immokalee Regional Airport. This celebration of flight will feature more than 30 custom hot air balloons, tethered balloon rides, live music by award-winning performers, culinary treats, children’s activities, art, demonstrations by agility dogs and more. Admission to the event is free.

The balloons will kick off each morning with a dawn patrol glow, illuminating to a musical score performed by Drum ‘n’ Strings. Festival-goers will be able to walk among the balloons as they inflate for a mass ascension into the skies, all to the sounds of Southwest Florida Big Band, Jazz Scholars and Gene Ferrari. The colorful balloons will be in air for several hours with a great line-up of activities to fill the rest of the day. Additionally, a group of balloons will engage in a mass landing at the airport.

On April 14, from 6 a.m. to midnight, attendees will also enjoy a local battle of the bands competition, the Harvest festival parade and the crowning of the Harvest Queen. Musical entertainment includes performances by country singer JJ McCoy and blues and R&B group Nouveaux Honkies. At 6:45 p.m., Grammy-nominated country star John Anderson will perform during a sundown balloon glow.

The balloon festival will continue on April 15, from 6 a.m. to 4 p.m., with musical entertainment and more. At 2 p.m., ASCAP award-winning singer Kathy Kosins will perform her jazz classics.

Tethered balloon rides are $10. Parking is $5. Outside food and beverages are not permitted.
