Watching the Weather

***NOTE: Many times the weather looks fine standing on the ground, but a few feet up the winds can be causing havoc. The wind speed is the crucial factor; flights may be postponed or canceled on the field. This is frustrating for both the public and the pilots, but safety is always our priority. When waiting to see if there will be a flight, please visit with the vendors, and talk with the hot air balloon teams.
