The FireLake Fireflight Balloon Festival takes to the skies over Shawnee! Presented by Citizen Potawatomi Nation, the FireLake Fireflight Balloon Fest is Oklahoma’s largest hot air balloon festival. Entry is free. The festival features 20 unique hot air balloons, live entertainment, family activities, a 5K fun run, fireworks, and more. Balloon launches start at 7 a.m., and you have a chance to hop in a basket, take a flight, and get a birds’ eye view! On the ground, enjoy food trucks, inflatables, a splash pad, carnival, petting zoo, and vendor market. And, don’t miss the Outdoor Nation Expo at nearby FireLake Arena. In the evening, listen to live music from artists like Vince Van and the Outlaws and Craig Morgan while watching the spectacular balloon glow.
