New starting location Island Jogging Path

The Havasu Balloon Festival & Fair has decided to hold another 2021 Balloon Fest 5K Fun Run on October 16th, 2021 in Lake Havasu City, Arizona. Our January 2021 Havasu Balloon Festival & Fair at Lake Havasu State Park was cancelled due to Covid-19. We held a Balloon Fest 5K Fun Run on January 16, 2021 but had limited participation due to Covid restrictions. We still have some beautiful 2021 Balloon Fun Run medals and on Oct. 16th, we are going to have another 2021 Balloon Fest Fun Run on the Island Jogging Path. We are also offering the option of a Virtual Run. All Balloon Fest Funds collected from this event will be distributed to local charities who can use our help.

The 2022 Annual Balloon Fest 5K Fun Run at Lake Havasu State Park (Windsor 4) will be held Saturday, January 22, 2022 with all new beautiful medals and cost will include admission for the day into the Balloon Festival so that you can watch hot air balloons launch and enjoy the event after your run. Registration forms will be available in October, 2021.
