Built Ford Tough Polo & Balloon Festival

May 10-12, 2013
Gulfstream Polo Club
4550 Polo Road, Lake Worth, Fla.

An event for the entire family comes to Gulfstream Polo Club May 10-12. The Built Ford Tough Polo & Balloon Festival has something for everyone, including a weekend of polo, music, hot air balloon rides, food, vendors and more.

Festivities begin Friday night with a polo game. Afterward, seven hot air balloons will inflate on the field, and tether rides will be given for $5. Tickets for only 350 rides will be sold, so come early to guarantee your ride. Tickets begin selling at 5:30 p.m., with proceeds benefiting the Injured Marine Semper Fi Fund. The Budweiser 55 Select beer bottle balloon — a must-see attraction — will also inflate to 15 stories high.

Each morning dozens of hot air balloons will take off from the polo field in a mass ascension. Attendees are invited to walk among the six- and seven-story balloons as they inflate and lift off. To honor our servicemen and women on Saturday morning, 20 Marines will be given balloon rides. Be sure to come out and thank them for their service. On Saturday night, the festivities begin with the Polo Classic. After the game the balloons will return to the field for the Balloon Glow. All of the balloons will be tethered as they light their burners to create an awe-inspiring light show.
