Please join members of the Southeastern Camping, Carolinas, South Carolina Coastal, Piedmont NC, Florida, and other Airstream Clubs from Region 3 and beyond for the Carolina BalloonFest Rally in Statesville, NC October 15-17, 2021. We will have parking convenient to the entrance to the festival grounds.
Information from previous years is available at: http://www.carolinaballoonfest.com/. Those who were scheduled for 2020 have the option of registering for 2021. For all others, we hope to have access for registration, sign up before the general public. In order to guarantee a space with the club, our applications and deposits will have to be received by a date TBD. After that the festival, as last year, will start assigning spaces with WBAC starting at space 1 and the general public starting at the other end (whatever that may be, this year it was 75).
This will be a no-frills rally with no rally fee. We attempt to plan our happy hours and meals around the festival events which requires some flexibility as the event timing is dictated by weather conditions.
1. Reservations are not refundable, but the festival has committed to support transfer of a reservation to another person as needed.
2. This is boondock-style camping. Arrive full of water, batteries charged, and holding tanks empty! Generators are allowed and pets are OK in the camping area. There will be food trucks on site, but they have been crowded in the past. Exit and re-entry are possible, but not convenient, so best plan to bring enough food and drink for the rally.
