The Big Country BalloonFest is a fun, family oriented event that takes place right in our backyard at SoHills. Over 25,000 people typically pass through Red Bud Park over a BalloonFest weekend.
In 2007, we met with the BalloonFest organizers and offered SoHills help... and we were assigned responsibility for the "inflatables" and "climbables" (think Moon Bounces and climbing walls). In typical fashion, SoHills stepped up in a great way to a clear expression of our Vision to be a "God's community front porch" people.
BalloonFest 2008 will be taking place the weekend of September 26-28-- so mark those dates on your calendar. SoHills is once again committed to staff the "inflata-climbables"... and we'll also be sponsoring the Saturday evening concert at the BalloonFest's music venue.
This year's SoHills sponsored BalloonFest music will be supplied by Abilene's very own Homer Hiccolm and the Rocketboys. I'm pretty excited!
