NZs most anticipated Balloon Festival is returning to Wairarapa in Easter 2022, from Thursday 14th until Monday 18th April.
This magical five day festival promises to be fun for the whole family, with glorious balloons filling the wonderful Wairarapa skies. Balloons will take off from a different local town each morning. Look up and be in awe of their beauty.
The pinnacle event - the Night Glow - on Saturday 16 April. The 2022 Glow will be bigger and brighter than ever before, with 6 hours of action-packed entertainment, kicking off from 4pm. See a parachutist jump out of a hot air balloon, watch the laser light displays and drone racing, soak up the live music and entertainment, and feast on the delicious range of food and beverages from over 40 food trucks. Then, see the line-up of balloons light up the night to music, providing a spectacular finale.
The 2022 Night Glow promises to be a joyful and vibrant extravaganza that’s not to be missed.
