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.
