29th Lisle Eyes to the Skies Balloon Festival

July 1, 2009 11:29:16 AM PDT
The Eyes to the Skies Festival is known throughout the nation for the wonderful display of hot air balloons. This is one of the most watched features of the Festival every year. The most spectacular view you can see of these balloons is just before and after the fireworks shows. The balloons will be tethered to the ground but lift off about 100 feet so in the darkness of the night you can see the balloons glowing, giving their own light show.

More than 300 Lisle residents now volunteer to help the event, which attracts an attendance each year of more than 150,000. Highlights include performances by nationally known musical groups, the best in local band performances, a large carnival, a 100-booth craft fair, a special children's area, food court and of course, daily launches of hot air balloons and a balloon glow. There's also an annual Fourth of July parade and a spectacular fireworks show.
