Hot Air Balloon Flights
Make your Festival experience memorable and book a hot air balloon flight.
  • Your flight will begin at sunrise as the balloon lifts gently into the sapphire skies above Lake Skinner. Balloons cannot "steer" and must fly with the gentle breezes of the air currents. You could find yourself back at the Festival grounds or floating gracefully over the Temecula Valley wine country.
  • Your pilot will return you safely to the Festival and an afternoon of fun.
