Our site, just steps from the field, is a dry camping experience. Water and honey trucks are available. Bring your (quiet) generator. Join Airstreamers from across North America at this colorful event as hundreds of balloons take to the sky! At this rally you are not sitting on the sidelines but rather you are part of the festivities beginning with the early morning Dawn Patrol through the evening Glow and fireworks!

Update - January 22, 2024: The Deadline for submission of the Application Form has past!

We will then randomly pick registrations by lottery. If you are selected, you will be notified by email. Anyone who is not selected in our initial lottery will be put on a waitlist in the order picked by the lottery. When we get cancellations, we will notify those on the waiting list and you will have limited time to confirm your attendance. Please note that if you are notified and do not respond, you are dropped from the waitlist.

This is important – there is no need to be the first to apply – those who apply first will be in the same lottery as those who apply on the last day. No need to rush to your computer to apply, you have seven days to do so. We will close Applications on January 21, 2024.
