Additional Information

PHOTOGRAPHY

Photography is welcome but please consider others when setting up tripods – please only set up where they won’t impede the view of others 

PETS

For safety reasons, the venue does not allow pets. In addition to this, pets generally find the sound of the balloon burners, as well as fireworks, quite distressing so best to keep your pets at home.

NO ATM FACILTIIES

There will be no ATM facilities at this event. Some stall holders will be able to offer EFTPOS for sales but to avoid disappoint, we suggest you have some cash on hand for purchases.

PROGRAM CHANGES

While every attempt is made to present the program as advertised, due to the weather dependant nature of hot air balloon, the program is subject to change without notice. No refunds will be given due to a change in programming other than in the event of extreme weather causing cancellation of entire event.
