Can I bring my dog?
Despite the fact that we’ve been telling people for years not to bring their pet to the park during balloon operations, some people still do. While it’s very true that pilots don’t appreciate having their balloons “marked” as it were, or spreading them out over the spot Fido last made a pit stop, it actually goes a bit farther than that. The burners that power the balloons make a sound that is inaudible to humans, but when experienced up close by your pet, actually hurts his/her sensitive ears. It’s the same reason that dogs bark and cats, horses and cows beat feet the opposite direction when a balloon flies overhead. Give your pet a break, leave them home! Their ears thank you!
Can I bring my drone?
Absolutely no drones will be allowed on the premises by regulation of the FAA.
Are there any safety precautions I should be aware of?
Never, ever, EVER, step on a balloon. Always be mindful of where your feet are.
Please listen carefully to any instructions given over the P.A. system.
Refrain from smoking on the field. Propane fumes will sink to the ground and are very explosive! Please, simply walk to the edge of the site before you light up. This will also avoid a burned balloon from ashes or a dropped cigarette.
