2nd Annual Tunica Balloon Bash

Balloons return to the sky at the 2nd Annual Tunica Balloon Bash on August 9-11, 2013.  Tunica will welcome 50 hot air balloons at five casino resort properties.  Hot air balloonists from across the country will compete in early morning races to win over $12,000 in cash and prizes.

And this event isn’t just for the hot air balloon expert!  Each casino property will host balloons in their parking lot for a balloon glow at sunset on Friday night with glows also on Saturday night as select properties.  Visitors are invited to meet the pilots and experience the size and beauty of this majestic sight of the orange glow in the Mississippi Delta.

Hot Air Balloons in Pop Culture

 

Hot air balloons are going to brighten up the sky in Tunica next month when forty float in for the Tunica Balloon Bash. They’re fun to watch from the ground, but they also add pizzazz in movies, TV and when celebraties appear in them.

A Hot Air Balloon History Lesson

On November 9-11, Tunica will host the first-ever Tunica Balloon Bash. We’re very excited to add tethered rides, balloon glows and a pilot competition to our visitors’ gaming experience that weekend. But all the talk about hot air ballooning has also made us wonder how they got their start.

1st Annual Tunica Balloon Bash

The air’s going to be hot in Tunica this November!  Come see the 1st Annual Tunica Balloon Bash that will welcome 40 hot air balloons to four casino resort properties.  Hot air balloonists from across the country will come together the weekend of November 9-11, 2012 to compete in early morning races to win over $12,000 in cash and prizes.

And this event isn’t just for the hot air balloon expert!  Each casino property will host balloons in their parking lot for a balloon glow at sunset on Friday and Saturday nights.  Visitors are invited to meet the pilots and experience the size and beauty of this majestic sight of the orange glow in the Mississippi Delta.

In addition to the balloon glow, visitors will have an opportunity to ride 40-50 feet up in a hot air balloon on a tethered ride.  One balloon at each property will be tethered or attached to the ground for these rides at no cost.  Make sure to get there early because the tethered rides only last for 2 hours and we expect a long line.

And if you do visit during the festivities, we want to see your photos of the event or your view from up above Tunica.  Show us your view by sharing your photos on Twitter and Instagram with the tag #TunicaBalloonBash or post them on Facebook.com/TunicaMS.
