The Pie Capital of Texas®


Labor Day Weekend

Tethered Hot Air Balloon Rides

Wheelchair accessible, Tethered Hot Air Balloon Rides are available at the Pie in the Sky Hot Air Balloon Festival and Pie Eating Competition in Kyle, Texas. Because everyone should be able to have as many life experiences as possible, and these days going to a festival has become a rite of passage. Sadly, there is a large part of the population that misses out on these life experiences due to having an additional need.

If you have a disability and require special accommodations in order to enjoy your time at Pie in the Sky, please email so arrangements can be made.



Tethered Hot Air Balloon Rides are scheduled to run from sunrise for two hours in the morning and two hours before sunset to one hour after in the evening, weather permitting.

* Weather conditions during hot air balloon festivals are closely monitored by the Balloonmeister and festival organizers. Safety is our top priority. If conditions are unsafe, Tethered balloon rides may be postponed or canceled; that may include high winds, elevated heat index, rain, lightning, or other inclement conditions. Sign up for festival updates via text (free), which will be available beginning the day prior to the opening of the event. Check this website and social media for instructions. On-site signage at the festival gate will also instruct festival attendees on how to sign up for free text updates.
