Weekend To-Do: Legends Balloon Rally

Legends Balloon Rally is this weekend at Hot Springs Memorial Field Airport.
  • Legends Balloon Rally is this weekend at Hot Springs Memorial Field Airport.

LEGENDS BALLOON RALLY
4:30 p.m. Hot Springs National Park Memorial Field Airport. Free.

Hot air balloons are pretty awesome, but when you add in The Charlie Daniels Band and Three Dog Night, plus a classic car show, a Baggo tournament and refreshments and the admission is free, well friends, that's a recipe for a good time if ever there was one.

After all, Charlie Daniels played the rally last year, and he's coming back this year. If you want to hear "The Devil Went Down to Georgia," make sure and get there Friday night by 7:30 p.m. If you want to hear "An Old Fashioned Love Song," be there Saturday night by 7:30 p.m.

The balloons fly into the airport at 5:30 p.m. each day and they're lit up for a balloon glow at 7 p.m. This will probably be a lot of fun, especially if you've got young'uns. Bring a chair, but don't bring an ice chest or any dogs.

Because of anticipated wind this weekend, the race portion of the rally has been moved from the airport to various other locations around the city. Click here for more information.
