During the '80s, McCook, Nebraska was host to one of the most colorful annual family events held in the midwest. McCook Balloon Blast featured an amazing display of hot air balloons, spreading out across the Southwest Nebraska sky and thrilling spectators of all ages.

After the tragedy of September 11, 2001, the McCook Chamber of Commerce reunited previous Balloon Blast pilots, crew volunteers and participants to put together an all new Balloon Fest. Launching the "High Plains Freedom Flight" as a special tribute to freedom, McCook Balloon Fest claimed the skies once again with bright colors and the peaceful flight of hot air balloons.

Today, McCook Balloon Fest continues to grow as one of Nebraska's most spectacular annual family events. Hot Air Balloon Pilots are invited in from across the country, adding a variety of colorful balloons for visitors to enjoy.
