Hot air balloons do not fly during the day’s heat; therefore, after the morning competition, the balloon field gates remain locked until 4:00 p.m. This is the perfect time to explore our vibrant community. Trails, shopping, dining, breweries, and wineries; Indianola and Warren County have much to offer.
Check out some of the great things to see and do by visiting Hotel Pommier’s, #staylocalguide at https://indianola.hotelpommier.com/. Hotel Pommier is the official hotel of the National Balloon Classic. Or visit the Indianola Chamber of Commerce website at https://www.indianolachamber.com/.
