Conner Prairie gets ready for the annual Balloon Glow by Jupiter Flights



Indianapolis, Indiana – One of the year’s most thrilling events is set to take off! On Friday, Saturday, and Sunday, Conner Prairie will host its annual Jupiter Flights Balloon Glow.

Weather permitting, more than 40 vibrant hot air balloons will soar over the sky multiple times each day.

The Balloon Glow is sold out, but on Saturday and Sunday mornings, spectators can watch their favorite pilot compete for free. Following the last race on Sunday, the overall winner will be declared.

“Stay for our evening balloon glow featuring bounce houses, NeST RC Model Aviation Club live demonstration, and fun activities for the whole family,” event organizers said.

A three-acre sunflower field, a corn maze, and a meet-and-greet with the balloon pilots are among the attractions available to visitors.

Along with Stella Luna and the Satellites’ live music, ticket holders can eat a variety of foods such burgers, brats, pretzels, and popcorn.
