About Balloons Over Waikato
Scores of colourful hot-air balloons float through the sky during Balloons Over Waikato, an annual festival held over five days in late March/early April in Hamilton. Float up and away on a magical hot-air balloon ride, or find fun on solid ground - wind your way through Santa's Lolly Shop (a display created entirely of balloons), or grab some goods from the vendors. The highlight of the festival is the NightGlow, a spectacular display as the balloons are lit to music, followed by dazzling fireworks.
