Kansas City Hot Air Balloon Invitational
KC Hot Air Balloon Invitational

The Kansas City Hot Air Balloon Invitational (KCHABI) is a public event that occurs over the Memorial Day Weekend.  Activities include the launching of more than thirty hot air balloons, family activities, entertainment and food.  The event began as a small launch in 2009.  In 2010 it was moved to Celebration Park in Gardner, Kansas and the size and scope of the event grew.  We anticipate 2011 to be even bigger with a wider variety of activities and greater outreach to the Kansas City metropolitan area. 

Event Location:
Celebration Park
32701 W. 159th St.
(159th Street and Kill Creek Road)
Gardner, Kansas  66030
