Those who are unaware, balloon festivals are a great way to see hot air ballooning close up, and are a pleasant family trip. In addition to this, balloon festivals typically include other activities as well like live entertainment, amusement rides and a few more.Piloting a balloon requires (licensing and buying of tools).
Since the balloon moves with the direction of the winds, so there is no speed limit, the passengers feel absolutely no wind and enjoy the moment and flow. Usually hot air ballooning launches are made during the cooler hours of the day, at dawn or 2 to 3 hours before sunset. The wind flows are typically light making launch and landing of the balloon easier.
Modern hot air ballooning was born in 1960, when Ed Yost launched a balloon with a new nylon envelope and propane burner system of his own invention. Yost's first balloon was basketless, with nothing but a seat for him to ride on, but in a few years he and other balloon enthusiasts would develop balloons much like the ones used today.
