You can get Valentine's day do-over at Hamlin Balloon Festival next month since Orlando is hosting a one of a kind hot air balloon festival and it's the perfect excuse to plan a second date.
The balloon festival will take place on March 2nd from 5:30 pm until 8:30 pm. Besides watching the sunset over Lake Hancock, you'll be able to ride a tethered balloon for only $20. Now, that's way cheaper than paying over $100 for a normal hot air balloon ride. This five-minute balloon ride will offer a romantic experience for up to five passengers looking for a unique adventure.
Food booths will be available during the festival. Also, you can bring your furry friends but, pets are not allowed on the tethered balloons.
Besides the Homestead Balloon Glow happening on March 1st, you can also get the opportunity to visit The Villages Balloon Festival in Ocala on March 22nd until March 24th. The nightly glow will start at 7 pm and you can buy tickets here.
Hot air balloon festivals are taking over Florida and is undoubtedly one of the best ways to enjoy the beginning of spring season. Unfortunately, the balloons are not certified to carry wheelchairs and passengers under 18 must be accompanied by an adult.
The festival will be located at 14111 Shoreside Way, Winter Garden. You can purchase your tickets in advance here.
