The event organizers, the Great Plains Balloon Club, along with our host Mount Hope Cemetery, Funeral Chapel & Reception Center are planning to bring hot air balloons back to Topeka, Kansas once again!
Weather permitting, about twenty balloons will launch from the Mount Hope Balloon Field on the mornings of September 10th & 11th, and the evenings of September 9th & 10th.
Just a reminder, ALL balloon activity is weather permitting. The safety of our Pilots & their Crews, along with their potential Passengers is our top priority.
We will be hosting a Crew Training event, dates to be announced.
We will once again be hosting the Balloon Discovery Workshop for youth that will be held on the Balloon Field on Saturday Afternoon. We will have a sign up for all participants on the join tab on the Great Plains Balloon Club website.
The Huff â€˜n Puff Hot Air Balloon Rally is an event that has always maintained a status of â€˜free and open to the publicâ€™. This would not be possible without the generous support of our event sponsors. Through their continued involvement with the Huff â€˜n Puff Hot Air Balloon Rally, we are able to share the beautiful spectacle of the sport of hot air ballooning with the Topeka and NE Kansas Community.
