(from last year's festival)
If you have never watched a balloon festival, I urge you to find a date, show up early, and enjoy. This year's Springville Art City Days Balloon Festival is this coming weekend, Friday the 13th and Saturday the 14th. The festival starts at 6:30 AM. (Early I know, but SOOO worth it!) It is held at Springville Junior High (165 South 800 East, Springville). And it's free!!
People are encouraged to come up early, bring blankets and chairs, and a picnic breakfast wouldn't hurt either. Besides just watching the colorful balloons heat up and take off, pilots show off their mad skills. They will also be dropping colorful balls from each balloon that can be redeemed for treats and prizes.
