The Poteau Balloon Fest is a fun annual event featuring hot air balloons, tethered balloon rides, a mud pit race, arts and crafts booths, games, food, carnival rides and much more. Each evening the balloons will line up for an exciting balloon glow as the hot air balloons perform via burns, flickers and the wave. 

Armbands are good for Friday and Saturday and include the following shows and attractions: America's Best Flying Dogs, Derek Cook FMX, Raceday Park, Little Mr. and Miss Balloon Fest, Cockrill's Country Critters, a pet contest and Rumble on the River Mud Event. For an additional charge, attendees can enjoy carnival rides, take a ride on a helicopter or monster truck, or take to the air in a tethered hot air balloon. 

Bring a blanket or lawn chair to the LeFlore County Fairgrounds in Poteau and enjoy all the fun. All events are weather permitting. If balloons are not able to fly, pilots will be available to answer questions about hot air balloons. They will be monitoring the weather and announcing flight times throughout the day. Any and all balloon flights are most likely to occur between the hours of 7-10am and 4-7pm, but exact times may vary.
