Balloon Events Newsletter

An event for the entire family is coming to Gulfstream Polo Club, 4550 Polo Road, Lake Worth, FL on April 18-20, 2014. The Built Ford Tough Polo and Balloon Festival has something for everyone. This will be a weekend of hot air balloons, polo, music, balloon rides, food, vendors and much more.

Festivities begin on Friday night with Balloon Rides, Polo Game and Tether Balloon Rides. After the polo game seven hot air balloons will inflate on the field and offer tether rides. The tether rides go on sale at 5:30 PM. Only 350 tether rides are available. Be sure to come early to purchase your tickets. Tether rides are $5 per person with the funds going to the Injured Marine Semper Fi Fund.

Each morning the 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 Service Men and Women we will take twenty Marines for a balloon ride on Saturday morning. 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.

Admission is free to all events with a donation to the Injured Marines Semper Fi Fund

Balloon Rides are available at $200 per person. Rides will take place Friday at 6:00 PM, Saturday 7:00 AM and Sunday 7:00 AM. To book a ride please call (803) 652-1181
