Event Details

The Colorado River Crossing Balloon Festival is one of Yuma's Premier Events. Mass ascensions every morning at sunrise from the West Wetlands Park give you a breathtaking glimpse of these creative balloons. Admission to morning launch is a canned food donation.

The highlight and crowd favorite of this 3 day event is the Balloon Glow at Desert Sun Stadium on Saturday evening. Tethered balloons glow brightly as their burners are fired to choreographed music. The admission to the glow is $2 per person and canned food donation to benefit the less fortunate in Yuma County.
