The annual Hot Air Balloon Festival is back to color the Mesquite sky Jan. 25-27. The three-day event draws people from all over the country to launch their balloons over the beautiful desert scenery of Mesquite.

Spectators are invited to watch the hot air balloons take off and walk among the displays for an up-close experience and opportunity to meet with the balloon crews. The evenings will end with breathtaking views of inflated balloons lit by burners in the south parking lot of CasaBlanca Resort and Casino. The family-friendly event will also offer culinary and entertainment festivities for the whole family during the fun weekend.

Remember to send in those event notices, things are going to be happening that you’ll want folks to know about. Send them to terin.bbm@gmail.com so you can everyone know what’s happening with your group or club.
