Hot air balloons, entertainment, music, food, fun and surprises.  On the lush green fields of the Lamar Dixon Expo Center, you and your family can take in the sights of the festival in a relaxed and comfortable setting, while enjoying the rural, open spaces. Bring the entire family down to Lamar Dixon, and see why this year’s Ascension Hot Air Balloon and Boucherie Festival is the place to be.  Go to for more info!


This year’s festival will absolutely be an improvement from all years previous, with the new Edenbourne exit open from I-10 (exit 179, directly before/ after the Tanger outlet and Cabela’s exit, 177), we are expecting to alleviate some of the traffic coming into and leaving the festival. The festival has also combined with the Boucherie Festival doubling the size of its carnival, and increasing its number of food and drink vendors. Tethered balloon rides will be offered by 3 balloons this year, and our children’s village has moved indoors, which will include our newest attraction: the Spider-Man and Captain America!

Admission: $5 (Cash Only) for adults, children 8 and under are free.
