The Hororata Glow Festival is a spectacular event brought to you by the Hororata Community Trust and Ballooning Canterbury.
A registered Charity, Hororata Community Trust is all about helping this rural community grow and achieve its goals.
Ballooning Canterbury is a commercial hot-air ballooning company operating from Hororata. They offer people from all around the world the ultimate scenic adventure.
Together with 130 volunteers, they make the Hororata Glow Festival happen.
All profits from the event are invested back into the community. The festival also provides an opportunity for many community groups to fundraise for their own causes.
This festival is all about giving people a positive experience, that boost we all need going into winter. We want everyone to GLOW!
The hot air balloon Night Glow will light up the sky. Be amazed as these giant balloons glow in unison to music*. Prior to the Night Glow performance, people will be able to walk inside a giant cold inflated hot air balloon as well as interact with the balloon crews.
Surrounding the hot air balloons will be a magical festival where everything will GLOW!
The Hororata Glow Festival will host the best of Selwyn food and wine, attractions, and activities. As well as offering a cultural feast with 40 different food vendors.
*Please note the balloons do not leave the ground at any point during the event.
