The Great Mississippi River Balloon Race is Mississippi's most exciting hot air balloon race weekend! Two balloon flights take place each day, weather permitting. Pilots compete as they fly over the cities of Natchez, Vidalia, and the mighty Mississippi River. The Festival has become a popular tradition here every October. Our balloon festival weekend starts with the Balloon Glow Friday night, and continues through Sunday evening with a stage full of World Renowned Musicians.

The festival itself takes place on the grounds of Rosalie Bicentennial Gardens, On Broadway Street in historic downtown Natchez.
