Join us for our 6th Annual “5K Run/Walk With the Balloons” that will kick-off our SAFE Kiwanis Indiana Balloon Fest 2.0! Due to COVID-19, this years 5K Run/Walk will be virtual. A virtual race is a race that you can run or walk from any location at your own pace. You can run on the road, walk on a trail, jog on a treadmill, or anywhere you desire. Grab a friend and get active while supporting the SCI Kiwanis Indiana Balloon Fest!  

Balloon Fest 2.0 will be a drive-thru event, which will host traditional hot air balloons and include special shaped balloons Neptuno The Seahorse, Ricky Raccoon and Billy the Kid. This one-day event will give you a chance to get out of the house, see amazing hot air balloons, virtual shopping and pick-up your favorite fair food! For additional details regarding Balloon Fest 2.0, please visit or visit us on Facebook at Kiwanis Indiana Balloon Fest.
