Seminole Casino Immokalee's 2nd Annual Balloons Over Paradise Festival

Seminole Casino Immokalee’s 2nd Annual “Balloons Over Paradise” Festival will feature more than 50 custom hot air balloons and plenty of fun for the whole family including tethered balloon rides, live music by award-winning performers, food vendors, an art showcase, children’s activities, cultural village, carnival games, show and stunt kites, a classic car show, demonstrations by agility dogs and more.

The vivid multi-hued balloons will kick off each morning with an illuminated light show to orchestral music. Festival-goers can stroll among the balloons as they inflate for a mass ascension into the sky. Specialty balloons include Sugar Bear, Ella “phant” and a flying globe.

Headlining this year’s festival on Saturday, April 20, is rocker Eddie Money who will perform his greatest hits including “Baby Hold On,” “Shakin',” “Think I’m in Love” “Take Me Home Tonight,” “I Wanna Go Back,” “Walk on Water” and “Peace in Our Time.” On Sunday, April 21, solid gold pop-rockers The Buckinghams will perform. Backing Dennis Tufano’s buoyant lead vocals with prominent harmonies and punchy soul-styled brass, the group’s “Kind of Drag” became a million-selling pop chart-topper. Other hits include “Don’t You Care,” “Hey Baby (They’re Playing Our Song),” the pseudo-psychedelic “Susan,” and the Cannonball Adderley jazz standard “Mercy, Mercy, Mercy.” Following will be The Grass Roots belting out their major hits, most notably “Let’s Live for Today,” “Midnight Confessions,” “Temptation Eyes,” and “Two Divided by Love.”
