Mesquite Gaming will host the sixth annual Mesquite Balloon Festival Friday, Jan. 20 – Sunday, Jan. 22. More than 35 hot air balloons will take to the skies in the early mornings over the Southern Nevada desert in a stunning display.

Balloon pilots and crews from many of the western states and parts of Canada bring a passion for flying and share it with the community in this free family-friendly festival. The annual Mesquite Hot Air Balloon Festival features a weekend of events for the whole family, including morning balloon launches, showroom acts, champagne tasting and a Hot Air Balloon night glow event.

Event parking is easily accessible to launch areas and is available at the Oasis Resort parking garage and CasaBlanca Resort. For more information on the Mesquite Gaming Hot Air Balloon Festival, call 888-711-4653, e-mail sales@mesquitegaming.com or visit http://casablancaresort.com/entertainment/.
