    The second annual Carson Valley Hot Air for Hope Balloon Festival will be held at Lampe Park in Gardnerville, Nevada and will serve as a benefit for the Center for Hope & Healing’s community programs.

    Organized by the Center and a group of local balloonists, the event is free to the public and will include two public balloon launches from Lampe Park at 6 a.m. on the mornings of Saturday, May 17, and Sunday, May 18. On Friday evening, May 16, hot air balloons will line the downtown streets of Minden for a balloon glow starting at 7 p.m.

    In addition to the balloon events, the festivities will include live bands, art performances, food trucks, and local vendors throughout the day at Lampe Park.

    The community is welcome to come to enjoy the balloons up close, take pictures and learn more about ballooning. If your business is interested in becoming a sponsor of this exciting community event, please contact us.
