About This Event
October means falling autumn leaves, changing weather and the Table Mountain Casino ClovisFest and Hot Air Balloon Fun Fly, a Clovis Chamber Event. Join the thousands of visitors in Old Town for free, family fun.
Don't miss this unique opportunity to learn more about diverse cultures –
close to home in the Central Valley. Local schools are also encouraged
to participate and can download our free Passport to Culture and International Village flyer.
Hot Air Balloons:
The Balloons will inflate and take off from the Clovis Rodeo Grounds starting about 6:15 a.m. Enjoy a hot, fresh cinnamon roll as you get a close up view as the giant orbs fill with hot air and pop upright, ready for lift off. By 7 a.m., they'll rise to float across the Valley sky. No balloon rides are available to the public.
Cross the street to Pollasky Avenue where the real fun begins. Start with a hot breakfast from various Old Town shops and festival food vendors. Then start shopping at the 200 craft and commercial booths. Find the Raceroom Simulators on 7th Street.
If great food is on your agenda, stop at the many vendors along Pollasky for kettle corn, shaved ice, cotton candy and a Texas Twister smoothie. Then go to the Bullard Food Court where you'll find the best of barbeque, Mexican food, chicken and delicious egg rolls. Enjoy a cool Pepsi product and a sweet treat from the Gorilla Gurt trailer.
Visit the Bud Lite Beer garden and enjoy a cool brew while listening to local bands. Your little ones will love the fancy balloon animals and full sized carnival on 4th Street. Don’t forget the cotton candy at Sweeties Treats. And look for William Opal, our special magician, who will be roaming throughout the festival.
Come join the over 70,000 visitors who enjoy this family friendly fun in a safe environment. We'll be waiting for you.
