Metro SAR Host Hot-Air Balloon Festival, Oct. 25-27
Friends of Metro Search and Rescue Las Vegas will host its second annual Balloon Festival and Carnival. The visually stunning event is expected to attract more than 20,000 attendees during the 3-day event. Families will be able to get up close and personal with the hot air balloons and their pilots. This is a great opportunity to see the behind-the-scenes magic of how these high flying marvels work. Balloons will be both tethered and also available for flights. New to this year’s line-up will be the Reach for the Stars balloon. This special balloon has a handicap-accessible basket, ensuring every single guest of the event, including children in wheelchairs, will be able to get inside and be lifted into the sky to experience hot air balloons. In addition to the spectacular hot air balloons, there will be live entertainment, food vendors, carnival rides and games, as well as live rescue demonstrations by Las Vegas’ very own Metro Search and Rescue Unit.
