Up to 25 hot air balloons from around the world take part in this five-day balloon extravaganza - one of New Zealand’s most spectacular events.

Balloons launch each day at around 7.30am in a breathtaking display.

The stunning and not-so-spooky "Nightmare House" special shape balloon makes its first appearance in the Southern Hemisphere!

On the Wednesday and Thursday mornings balloons make mass ascensions from Clareville Showgrounds near Carterton. On Friday morning balloons fly over Martinborough town and vineyards. Saturday and Sunday are exciting mornings of competition and fun over Masterton’s Henley Lake (Sat) and Hood Aerodrome (Sun). Some afternoon flights will also take place. All these events are FREE!
