5th Annual Havasu Balloon Fest 2015!

Lake Havasu Balloon Fest

The 5th Annual Havasu Balloon Festival is this Friday, Saturday and Sunday. Last year the event proudly flew 79 balloons and for 2015, expect the BEST balloon beauties flying over Lake Havasu City and in and around the Channel and the London Bridge again! Watch as the giant balloons lightly touch the water and quickly ascend via the splash and dash!

Balloons work on the very simple principle that hot air rises, as it is less dense than cold air. A balloon has a set of burners to heat the air, which fills the fabric of the envelope and causes ‘lift’. As the air is heated, the lifting force eventually overcomes the force of gravity and causes the balloon to rise. The balloon will not rise forever though since the air in the envelope will eventually cool causing the balloon to descend. As the balloon rises the air pressure also decreases. This means that there is less cool air to support the balloon and it will begin to drop again. By varying the temperature of the air in the envelope the balloon’s altitude can be controlled.

This is one of the best events held here in Lake Havasu City. With over 28,000 people attending this event it is guaranteed to be a blast! Here is the schedule of events for this weekend:
