LAS VEGAS (Sept. 17, 2015) – Southern Hills Hospital, Vegas Balloon Rides, Greenspun Media, Davis Amusements Cascadia and Silverton Casino Hotel are proud to bring back the Balloon Festival to Southern Nevada. Heading into its fifth consecutive year, Southern Hills Hospital hosts the Balloon Festival , a community event that has grown larger each year. Along with the hot air balloon morning launches and passenger rides, tethered balloon rides, kids’ activities, evening glow shows, amusement rides and carnival games, a special Saturday health fair will be held showcasing Southern Hills and community health partners including flu shots, blood pressure checks and more!

The event benefits Nevada high school students interested in the healthcare field through the “High School to Healthcare” scholarship program and The Public Education Foundation. Thanks to sponsor and vendor support in 2014, approximately $28,000 was raised for the Southern Hills Hospital High School to Healthcare Scholarship fund. This effort resulted in awarding five high school students $1,000 each for four years in college toward their healthcare education.

The Balloon Festival is free to attend unless otherwise noted, and the daily event schedule varies (weather permitting). For event sponsor and vendor opportunities, visit


Friday, Oct. 23 : 6 a.m. to 11 p.m.
