CANCELLED: New Smyrna Beach Balloon Glow

April 8 – 10 @ the New Smyrna Beach Airport, 602 Skyline Dr, New Smyrna Beach, FL 32168


Due to forecasted high winds this weekend, the New Smyrna Beach Balloon Glow has been postponed.

The National Weather Service predict winds of 22mph on Friday and 25mph on Saturday, and have further declared poor boating conditions through Sunday due to gusty weather.

The Balloon Glow Tour have an operational limitation of 7mph on tethered rides and at no point during the weekend does it look like weather conditions will be conducive for ballooning.

The Balloon Glow Tour have requested a reschedule date which will be announced later. Tickets sold will be valid on new dates, at other Balloon Glow Tour locations or the 2023 event. If these options do not work, please contact the Balloon Glow Tour on 407-615-1161 or email

Tour Director Richard Garvie made the decision to postpone, and apologized for any inconvenience caused.

“It’s really unfortunate that the weather conditions will not cooperate this weekend. As a company, we only get paid if we scan tickets at the gate and what we don’t want to do is redeem tickets if we know there is no chance of the balloons being inflated. It can’t really be a balloon festival without balloons, so it is better for most people that we try and do a different weekend.”

“We have tentatively penciled in a new date of June 10th to 12th, 2022 but this is subject to a variety of different approvals.”

“Most people will understand that the balloons cannot inflate in high winds and the need to put the safery of pilots, staff and guests before monteray concerns, but I too get that some people will be frustrated and may not be able to attend any new dates or other locations. For those people, I ask them to call me direct on 407-615-1161 or email so we can get them taken care of. Obviously we are expecting a few phone calls, so if you cannot reach us straight away, feel free to send a text message and I will be sure to call you personally.”

Come and celebrate 75 years of aviation in New Smyrna Beach at the airport with hot air balloon glows and tethered rides (weather permitting), an aircraft display, food vendors, retail vendors, activities for the kids and much more!
