The Balloon Classic Invitational is a fantastic family event that began in 1984 and was enhanced in 1995 when the event merged with the Jackson-Belden Food Fest & Fireworks. The first Balloon Classic featured just a handful of hot air balloons and has grown so extensively that more than 75 balloons. Pilots participate in team racing and target drops as they vie for a prize package. An awesome spectacle is the pole grab where pilots guided their balloons as close as possible to the designated pole in an attempt to grab the ribbon, a feat worth $3,000 and other great prizes.
