Drive to Balloon Fiesta park
As the field opens and we are given clearance to enter the field, we will collectively head toward the crew entrance. For security, vehicles entering park will be subject to search. While we make every effort to remain in one group, local traffic can cause breaks in the migration to Balloon Fiesta park. If you are separated form the group, please continue towards the crew-members entrance gate to rejoin the group. As we enter the park, you will be directed to parking areas. Please follow traffic and instructions by all Balloon Fiesta personnel.
Most importantly, Have fun!
