Date/Weather Date: Our hot air balloon adventure is planned for Friday June 22nd, and we have scheduled a weather/rain date for Friday June 29th. Hot air balloons require near perfect weather conditions to fly, we will keep everyone updated via e-mail about the weather and if we suspect that we will have to reschedule the event. Please make sure you are available both the original date and the weather date because we will not be able to issue refunds at that point if you cannot make the weather date.

You are welcome to stay and watch the flights, take photos and just enjoy the scenery after your project is finished.
Project: Each couple will be making one wooden sign. We will walk you through how to create the project, and it will be the perfect keepsake from the event, we will add a small clothespin so you can hang a picture from the night.
