Hot Air Will Blow Through Bayfront Park

Sorry, this video is no longer available

Preparations are underway for the third annual Hot Air Balloon Festival.

The free fun will include live music, a craft brew village and tethered balloon rides, weather permitting.

“It just attracts a very diverse crowd, it’s not specific to one type of group,” Kernz and Kompany event coordinator Jean Stojevich said. “Being a free event is a huge thing cause there’s not much that’s free anymore.”

Gates open this Friday at noon.

The event runs through Sunday.
