Festival Spectator Tips
- Dress in layers. It is sometimes very cool in the morning, but once the sun has risen, it warms up considerably.
- Bring lots of sunscreen. Temecula’s bright sunshine and reflections can produce painful sunburn. Shade tents will be available for temporary relief.
- Bring insect repellent. It is important to have the repellent with you to keep the insects away.
- Bring appropriate eye protection.
- DON’T SMOKE anywhere near the hot air balloons. A lit cigarette could ignite a balloon’s fuel tank.
- Watch where you walk and drive. Do not drive and watch at the same time as balloon chase vehicles make sudden stops. If you are walking on fields, please avoid stepping on balloon canopies and ropes.
- For the balloon glow, the balloons will be tethered and held down with heavy ropes. They will ignite their burners and glow to the beat of the music. Be careful that you don’t walk or trip over the ropes in the dark.
- Enjoy the glowing balloons from a safe distance. Children and adults should stay a reasonable distance away from the balloons. The operators will be very busy providing a wondrous show for our guests.
