The most spectacular moment is the Balloon Glow where the balloons go up at night and simultaneously fire their burners to light up the sky. They have special shape balloons in the form of various things like flying houses, cars, cacti, ristras, bottles, cans and animals.
There are nightly concerts with top regional and national talent; breath-taking air shows, hot-air balloons, an incredible Bengal tiger show, a marathon, historic tours, fun parades, dazzling fireworks displays, and amusement rides.
