First Vallarta-Nayarit Hot Air Balloon Fair, Announced
With the onset of spring, Riviera Nayarit is planning to cover the coastal sky with a parade of hot air balloons and host a down-to-earth party with music, antique car exhibitions, motocross, remote control aircraft, and booths selling regional food and products. Set to take place March 18 through 20th in Nuevo Vallarta, Nayarit, the first-ever Vallarta-Nayarit Hot Air Balloon Festival will offer both tourists and locals a fun new option in outdoor entertainment.
Although it may seem elaborate to compete with events such as the “International Balloon Festival” in León, Guanajuato; or the “Cielo Mágico Balloon Fiesta Monterrey” in Monterrey, the local organizers promise carve a place for themselves and throw an unprecedented party.
Puerto Vallarta and around Banderas Bay suggests that the inaugural event will be well attended. So far, organizers have announced that they’re offering 50 pre-sale tickets at $1,700 pesos per balloon ride (regular price $2,300 pesos) and entrance to the fair will be $50 pesos per person.
Organizers say that in the coming days they will provide more details on the venues and program costs, but at this point, they believe that the First Hot Air Balloon Fair in Riviera Nayarit will be very well received.
