Watch the Shawnee skyline transform into a mix of bright, brilliant colors as hot air balloons launch from the Citizen Potawatomi Nation Powwow Grounds. During the FireLake Balloon Festival, visitors can embark on a scenic balloon ride in one of thirty balloons on site. This two-day festival will also feature balloon glows, live music, carnival rides, kids zone, petting zoo and 5K races to round out the fun. Kids can also challenge their friends to a round of mini putt, while adults can scope out their favorite food trucks to refuel. One Nation Expo, a hunting and fishing show, will also be held at FireLake Arena during this event. Between the live entertainment, shopping and vibrant balloons guests are sure to have a blast at this community hot air balloon event.
