Due to the popular demand of the Warren County Hot Air Balloon Festival - previously held at Warren County Community College - organizers are excited to present Treats & Tricks, October 24 & 25, 2020, from 2-7:30 pm.

Review our Covid Survey

Treats & Tricks, will once again feature Drones and Hot Air Balloons, for an afternoon and evening of flying fun. In addition to Drone Demonstrations, Hot Air Balloon launches and Tethered Rides, there will be a Balloon Glow.

Of course we ask that you “mask up” but also invite visitors to dress in costume for this weekend event. There will be opportunities for children to do some Trick or Treating as well.

Food trucks include Angry Chouriço BBQ, Latin Bites, It’s Koffee Time, and a lemonade stand.

Admission will be limited so we suggest purchasing your tickets in advance. Admission does not include riding in the balloons. There will be tethered balloon rides offered, weather permitting, for $15 per person. Take a short up and down in a hot air balloon. Appropriate for all ages. Full length balloon rides will also be available, ranging from $210 per person to $550 for a private ride for two.
