Hot air balloonist from around the region will be in town this weekend for the Annual Re/Max The Group Balloon Roundup. The event lifts off Friday, July 25th through Sunday, July 27th at the Central Wyoming Fairgrounds. Times will vary depending on the events.

July 25th – 6pm Pilot Meet & Greet Cocktail Party at Parkway Plaza’s Old Town

July 26th – 6am Mass launch at the Central Wyoming Fairgrounds / 6:30pm Downtown Balloon Festival

July 27th – 6am Mass launch at the Central Wyoming Fairgrounds / 6:30am-7:30am free tethered balloon rides for kids 5 to 12 years of age.

If you have the time to help out with this year’s event, you are needed.

Able bodied persons who would enjoy being a part of the Casper Balloon Round Up should arrive at the Central Wyoming Fairgrounds by 0500 to assist in unpacking, inflating, and launching these eighteen balloons. After the balloons leave the ground the crew becomes the chase team and we follow the balloon’s flight through the streets of Casper until it lands. At that point we deflate and repack the balloon. It’s all finished by around 0800 and they won’t miss a minute of work.

Participants must wear sensible, closed-toed shoes and a jacket or pullover as it is still quite chilly at five in the morning.
