2019 Balloons Over Morgantown Event!
We're excited to announce that our 2019 event will be held October 24th-27th! The event will begin with NightGlow at Morgantown Mall on Thursday, October 24th. We'd like to say thank you to Harry Grandon and the Morgantown Mall for allowing us to take over their parking lots for this event! Following NightGlow, we'll have 5 scheduled launches over the weekend. All of the balloon launches will be held at the Morgantown Airport, weather permitting. We'd like to send a huge thank you to Alex Stockdale and her whole team at the Morgantown Municipal Airport for all the hard work they did to get us permission to launch from the airport. Our 2019 event would not have been possible without them! Please check our schedule page for details on the launches and events! Balloons Over Morgantown will once again be powered by Hagedorn's! Hagedorn's has been providing our propane for years and we're so grateful that they agreed to supply it again this year! If you ever need to purchase propane, please keep Hagedorn's in mind!!
We'll have more information and specifics to announce soon!
We're very sad to announce that one of our pilots, John Moran, passed away Friday during a balloon event in Ohio. John last attended our event in 2016 with his beautiful balloon Celebration and he will be missed by all
of us. Our thoughts and condolences go out to his family, friends, and the rest of the ballooning community during this time.
2017 Event Wrap-Up!
We reached the conclusion of what might be considered our most successful balloon event ever! We ended the weekend with every single launch and event happening - not a single weather cancelation! We don't think there's ever been a year when we've managed to have every single launch go. But the fate was on our side this year and we had perfect flying weather everyday. We hope that many of you were able to join us for the launches or saw the balloons floating over Morgantown. We'd like to thank all of our sponsors for helping to make this event possible. We'd also like to say thank you to our pilots and crew for filling our skies with beautiful balloons. It's always a pleaseure to see everyone and we hope that you can all join us again next year! We'd also like to thank our staff for their hard work and also our amazing spectators for coming out to see us! Thank you also to the local landowners who were surprised by balloons landing in their backyards - we appreciate the landing space and the help in packing up our balloons! Remember to check out our 2017 gallery and we also have some great video footage this year courtesy of Joel Serafy, Ohio leap and the crew of Oakley!
We look forward to seeing you all again next year for another Balloons Over Morgantown Event!!
