“We call it a mini Albuquerque, right in your own backyard of Santa Clarita,” Founder of the Citrus Classic Ballon Festival Carla Edwards said. “So you just step out just a few minutes down the highway, and you’ve got mini Albuquerque. You’ve saved many tanks of gas.”
Sunset Wine Dinner
On Friday night, VIP seating on the field is available with a Sunset Wine Dinner by DJ’s California Catering, People Choice’s Caterer of the Year.
On Saturday night, FirestoneWalker is providing Award-Winning beers, four pairings with a four-course gourmet dinner, and dessert at the Craft Beer Dinner.
Beer, wine or whatever is your pleasure will be available for your enjoyment, Edwards said. But, the best experience will be having a memorable dinner out there on the field looking at all the hot air balloons.
Vintage Trailer Village
New this year is the Vintage Trailer Village.
“They’re gorgeous vintage trailers, lovingly restored by their owners,” Edwards said. “ And, each one of them usually has a theme.”
The Vintage Trailer Village will feature themed Airstream, Inlands, Teardrop, and Shasta trailers.
We have one that actually has a cowboy theme andone that has a family-friendly bordello theme, Edwards said.There will be a lot of different things in the Vintage Trailer Village and each of the tralers will be retro.
Glow N Show Car Show
The Glow N Show Car Show hosts 200 cars. All makes and models are welcomed. The show is from 2-7 PM. And, the air show comes through overhead at 5 PM.
