Downtown Durango Balloon Glow

Friday, October 15, 2021

Event Description

Hot air balloons will light up the sky in Downtown Durango at the balloon glow in the 500 block of Main in front of the Durango & Silverton Narrow Gauge Railroad Depot.

Arrive around 6 pm to see the balloons inflate. The glow starts at approximately 6:30 pm, weather permitting. Visitors will be able to be up close to see the balloon pilots in action. Kids will love seeing all the colorful balloons! The balloons will come down around 7:30 pm, weather permitting. Schedule subject to change.

Make sure you bring your camera for the glowing balloons. There will also be "candlesticks" which are the balloon basket and burners, without the balloon. Pilots will let kids get in the basket and pull the burner, it's really cool!

Come earlier or stay after to enjoy dinner at one of the local restaurants near the event: T’s Smokehouse and Grill, East by Southwest, Gazpacho’s New Mexican Restaurant, Nini’s Taqueria, Sizzling Siam, Cuckoos’, or The Roost.

This is a free family friendly event. See multiple hot air Balloons and candlesticks up-close. The event is weather dependent, so cross your figures for a storm and wind-free evening.

Proudly sponsored by the Durango Business Improvement District.
