27th annual Balloon and Wine Festival in Temecula




Fly high in the sky oh magical balloon…and  take me away to another place, a place where time stands still, and when I

return I will be forever young.  



I love getting up at 7am to get to the Balloon and Wine Fest at 8am to see all the balloons coming in to land…



Hot air balloons require several things for a successful flight, cool air, fog-free skies, and calm winds. Hot air balloons

simply can’t fly in hot temperatures.  



The magic

began at dawn June 4th, 5th and 6th ,at Lake Skinner when the balloons take off and ends at 10 pm when the bands are done playing. 




Here is the balloon exhibit on the grounds throughout the day.  Free tethered rides are offered Sat. and Sun. morning

after the mass dawn launch.   


Where  every little kid want to know what’s  going on inside the big tent.



and of course he always get’s caught.



  The bands play throughout the day and into  the night, Vertical Horizon, Gin Blossoms and Paul Rodgers from Bad

Company to name a few.



At 830pm (Friday and Saturday only)  the evening balloon glow. A balloon glow is created by tethering several hot air balloons to the ground.

This produces a luminescent glow of colorful balloon canopies.




 A great end to a wonderfully magical day !

  1. How cool is that. It looked like a fun place to be I will definately be placing this event on my calander for next year. Thanks for sharing. Perla

  2. If you find it too expensive to do so have been dealt a
    blow over the past handful of years and 2008 was another one.
    The future of modern transportation awaits us.
    toyota jan was the first compact sedan of toyota jan Amaze.
    I had the RSC90 out to play again. Equipped with great tyres,
    this scooter is its solid road grip and lively riding performance.
    The pre-68 models had silver painted fenders; but those produced after March 1968 had chrome fenders.
    Back then we called them trail bikes.
