Overview

Adorable animals and popular cartoon characters make their appearance as gigantic balloons at the Balloon Fantasia. If weather and wind conditions are favorable, you may be able to enter the launch site, which is not normally open to the public, and have an opportunity to see these balloons up close.
As the sun climbs higher during the day, the temperature rises, making it easier for winds to start up. This can make it difficult to keep the balloons upright. Therefore, we may not be able to wait until 10:30 as scheduled to fold up the balloons, so please come to the fiesta grounds as early as possible. In general, the special shaped balloons that fly in the Balloon Fantasia cannot be inflated in the afternoon. We kindly ask for your understanding.

* Please understand that we cannot ensure that you will be able to enter the launch site.
* In 2005, the name of this event was changed from "Fun-Fun Carnival" to "Balloon Fantasia."
* Based on the balloon competition type and progress of the competition on a given day, the time slot of the Balloon Fantasia may be moved forward or backward slightly.
* The balloons that appear at this year's Balloon Fantasia may differ from those shown in pictures of the event.
