Balloon Rally & Glow

Free admission & open to all ages!

The Wausau Balloon Rally & Glow has become a “must-see” tradition for the Wausau area and surrounding communities.

This multi-day event has something for everyone…live music and delicious food all weekend long, children’s rides, helicopter and plane rides (fees may apply), kite-flying demonstrations, a spectacular fireworks show, and of course the beautiful hot air balloons!
