Hunter Valley Night Glow set to dazzle crowds

Augist 2017

An exciting new event is set to light up the night skies with the launch of the Hunter Valley Night Glow at Roche Estate on Saturday 30th September.  The highlight of the event will be a spectacular balloon night glow which will see ten hot air balloons light up their burners in the dark and all choreographed to music.

This unique event is a first for the Hunter region and the closest event of its kind to Sydney and surrounding areas. Hosted by Balloon Aloft and Roche Estate, the event will include a family friendly night market offering some of the Hunter Valley’s best food and wine along with musical performances throughout the night.

Gates open at 5pm with live music and roving performers set to entertain the crowds. There will be plenty on offer for the kids with jumping castles and face painting included in the price of admission and glow wands available for purchase.

A feature of the night will be the chance to walk through a semi-inflated hot air balloon and learn how a balloon operates with a pilot on hand to answer any of your ballooning questions. This will also make the perfect photo opportunity with people welcome to grab a selfie from inside the balloon envelope.

Event patrons are encouraged to bring a picnic rug to enjoy dinner under the stars while they enjoy the entertainment and of course, the balloon night glow which is scheduled to start at around 7.30pm. The ten balloons taking part in the night glow will include the newly launched Roche Estate Balloon which is the biggest passenger balloon in Australia and the latest addition to the Balloon Aloft fleet. Special shape balloons such as the Dodo and `Nudie’ balloons will also feature on the night and add to the excitement.

The event will conclude with a spectacular fireworks display over the Roche estate vineyard.

With online tickets priced at just $16 for adults and $7 for children, the event is sure to make for a memorable night out for the whole family.

The Hunter Valley Night Glow at Roche Estate is a new addition to the popular Balloon Aloft Fiesta which is running in the Hunter Valley from Friday 29th September until Monday 2nd October.
