Spiedie Fest & Balloon Rally will return in August of ’23.

Thanks so much to everyone who came to Spiedie Fest & Balloon Rally ’22! We look forward to the return of the packed concerts, spiedie cooking contests, hot air balloons, two day car show, volleyball tournaments, 5K run, sock out cancer day, and all of the other wonderful things that make this event so amazing. Thanks again to our sponsors and volunteers! Without them, we wouldn’t be able to offer this low cost event to families in our community.

For the holiday season, we are pleased to present the Festival of Lights.

Our team of volunteers have installed over a million lights all throughout the park. Bring the family down for a car ride through all kinds of shapes, sizes, and colors of holiday themed lights. New this year, we have teamed up with the Tall Pines Forest of Lights and combined both shows into one amazing exhibition of color.

Don’t miss a picture with Santa! Santa will be onsite every day spreading holiday cheer.

Pinkies BBQ will be present with an assortment of hot food and hand made donuts to keep everyone warm.

Your whole family can see this combined show and Santa for only $25!

Sunday – Thursday 5pm – 9pm.

Friday & Saturday 5pm – 10pm.

We’ve partnered with a long list of local schools and nonprofits this holiday season. Get your pass through one of these groups, and $10 will be donated to them!

Any money earned from the Festival of Lights goes towards paying the bills for next year’s Spiedie Fest & Balloon Rally. Our mission is simple – to create low cost events that add something special to the lives of our residents. The Spiedie Fest & Balloon Rally attracts over 100,000 people over a three day weekend. This event has significant impact, but also has significant cost. It wouldn’t be possible without the support of our donors.
