Balloon Fiesta Live!

Balloon Fiesta Live! Marks 6 years!

2022 marks the 6th year for Balloon Fiesta Live!, the live stream of all 14 sessions of the 9-day event. Once again this year, Glen Moyer and Art Lloyd Jr., will anchor the show from the rooftop studio, with Ruth Lind reporting from the field and Kim Vesely providing updates on America's Challenge. Approximately 40 hours of live coverage is planned for this 50th Anniversary and Event. And if that's not enough, more than 200 hours of live uninterrupted commercial-free coverage of the ascensions, glows, shapes, competitions, and more are now available "on-demand" using the links below. With multiple camera angles, including inside the target area for competition and in a balloon, Balloon Fiesta Live! provides a view unparalleled anywhere. And that's just a start. The on-air team each brings more than 30 years of ballooning, and broadcasting experience to the table. There just isn't a more knowledgeable and entertaining team anywhere! Check out the videos, from 2021 and before. And whether you're at Balloon Fiesta in person, or have to be away, Balloon Fiesta Live! is your ticket to the wonder, joy, and beauty of Balloon Fiesta.
