Please print and place a copy of your pre-paid parking pass FACING UPWARD on your vehicle’s DASHBOARD. You MUST purchase your parking pass TODAY if you have NOT done so.

WARNING: We ain’t fancy. Whoaaaa Trigger, whoa! Manage your expectations cowboy. This is a casual Festival with a down home Texas twist! We ain’t got 100 balloons….we got 3-4. Don’t be disappointed. You’ll be driving into the country, parking in a cow pasture and partying in a big open field. The winds decide when and if the balloons go up, not us. Please don’t come expecting a Ritz Cartlon in New York! Take a breath and get ready to enjoy the country! Goats. Chickens. Weird Neighbors. And Mo’! If you are high maintenance and can’t appreciate the simple things, this is probably not the event to attend. Maybe try Houston. We have about a half a dozen local artists and bands playing throughout Friday, Saturday and Sunday. Just like most Texas Dance Halls (from Luckenbach to Gruene) we have NATURAL HVAC and air conditioning. What’s that? A Hill Country Breeze and Ice Cold Beer. That’s it. So come prepared. Dress appropriately. VIP Food & Drink Service will run from 3 PM until 6PM on Saturday (or until sold out)! Polo Matches will run from 3PM until 5PM (mas o menos).
