Balloons Over Morgantown
University Toyota's Balloons Over Morgantown is an annual event held in October at the Morgantown Municipal Airport. Each year, 12-18 balloons are invited to fly over the beautiful hills of Morgantown during five launches over the course of the weekend. The event kicks off with the popular “Night Glow” where the balloons get a chance to show off their colors.
Launches are expected to take place at 8 a.m. and 4 p.m. but there may be slight delays depending on several factors such as weather. Although only the event staff can be on the grounds during the launch, spectators are welcome to view the launch from the nearby fence at the airport. The event staff asks that spectators steer clear of the entrance when parking and viewing the launch so that they can move freely throughout the area. All launch times are approximate.

The Night Glow will take place on October 24 at 6:30 p.m. at the Morgantown Mall. Balloon launches take place at the Morgantown Municipal Airport.
