COLLIERVILLE, Tenn. (WMC) - We’re just days away from the annual Collierville Balloon Festival. More than 20 hot air balloons will be there.

Shelby County Commissioner David Bradford and his family will take flight at 6 a.m. ahead of the start of the big festival.

The festival will start Saturday with gates opening at 3 p.m. and closing at 10 p.m.

The gates will reopen from 3-10 p.m. Sunday as well.

Festival organizers say there will be live music, a Kids’ Zone sponsored by Le Bonheur Children’s Hospital, food trucks and so many other vendors.

“All of the proceeds for Saturday and Sunday will go to local education or education in the area. We are a 501C3 nonprofit organization, so all the money is giving back to the community,” said organizer Chad Lindsay.

Tickets for balloon flights can be bought for those who wish to do so.

You can also sign up for a tethered balloon ride.
