Balloon shows will be held all three days of the festival. The Festival typically draws between 20 and 30 balloons and balloonists each year. Due to weather restrictions balloons only fly in the morning (starting at 6:00 AM) and in the evenings (starting at 6:00 PM), and flights are completely weather dependent.
In addition, lighted ?Balloon Glow? shows will be held daily at 8:00pm. For a small cost tethered balloon rides will be available to the public all three days.
More than 300 Lisle residents now volunteer to help the event, which attracts an attendance each year of more than 150,000. Highlights include performances by nationally known musical groups, the best in local band performances, a large carnival, a 100-booth craft fair, a special children?s area, food court and of course, daily launches of hot air balloons and a balloon glow. There?s also an annual Fourth of July parade and a spectacular fireworks show.
Eyes to the Skies is a non-profit festival, with 100% of proceeds going to charity. You won’t want to miss this festival where you can enjoy a lovely day in Lisle!
