Hot Air for Hearts Balloon Rally

Sponsored by Lakewoods Resort - Cable, Wisconsin

March 7 - 9, 2014 (Held Annually the 2nd Weekend of March)

Organizers of the Lakewoods’ Hot Air for Hearts Balloon Rally are holding another fun-filled weekend02-Balloon-Rally-Logo2.jpg. Hot air balloonists from Wisconsin and Minnesota come to participate in the Hot Air Balloon Rally for Charity. People from all over the Midwest attend the event which raises money for the Cable Area Lions Heart Benefit.Weather permitting, crew members help the balloonists set up and take down balloons and may ride along with the pilots during the flights. Flights are scheduled mornings and evenings on Friday, Saturday and Sunday and will fly as often as the weather permits. “The balloons can't always go up daily due to weather,” said Jill H. volunteer crew member, “but when you get to fly the views are incredible.” In addition to the balloon flights, a “glow” is scheduled in front of Lakewoods Resort after dark. On Saturday night, guests in the dining room and spectators alike are treated to a fantastic view of Lake Namakagon and the 3+ story high balloons lit up from the inside like giant luminary candles.

“Its great fun to see kids helping get the balloons up,” says Suzanne L. of Lake Namakagon, “my grandsons just love to watch the balloons.”

This charity event is great for the family and is a fantastic way to get out and enjoy the new snow this winter. All the colors of the balloons and racers make for a fun and festive atmosphere and both are very exciting to watch.

Congratuations to All the 2014 Racers!
