Tips & Kid Activities

Tips for your Trip

As with many public events a few genral tips can help you get the most out of you visit to the Alabama Jubilee:

  • Balloons fly early in the morning and late afternoon. Morning flights begin at 6:00a.m.; Afternoon 6 ~ 7:30p.m.

  • Tethered rides are limited and require a signed waiver of liability.  Children under 19 must be accompanied by a parent or guardian.

  • Many pilots will not tether children three and under. The loud burner noise can damage their ears.

  • Paid flights are not sold during the Jubilee. If you would like to purchase a ride for another time there are many pilots that sell them; please visit The Heart of Dixie Balloon Club for more information.

  • Dress appropriately, wear sunscreen, and stay hydrated.

  • Smoking is not allowed on the launch field. Balloons use liquid propane as fuel, which is highly flammable.

  • Dogs and other pets are discouraged since the loud noises and fire can frighten them. If you do bring them they must be leashed and bagged after.

  • The Alabama Jubilee is a 'No Drone Zone'. Unless you have a waiver attached to ours from the FAA you may NOT operate a drone during the Alabama Jubileee's FAA-autorized waiver times. Even if you are a licensed drone pilot.
