Tips for Jubilee
-Balloons fly early in the morning and late afternoon. Morning flights begin at 6:00a.m.; Afternoon 6 ~ 7:30p.m.
-Tethered rides are limited and require a signed waiver of liability. Children under 19 must be accompanied by a parent or guardian.
-Many pilots will not tether children three and under. The loud burner noise can damage their ears.
-Paid flights are not sold during the Jubilee. If you would like to purchase a ride for another time there are many pilots that sell them; please visit The Heart of Dixie Balloon Club for more information.
-Dress appropriately, wear sunscreen, and stay hydrated.
-Smoking is not allowed on the launch field. Balloons use liquid propane as fuel, which is highly flammable.
-Dogs and other pets are discouraged since the loud noises and fire can frighten them. If you do bring them, they must be leashed and bagged after.
-The Alabama Jubilee is a ‘No Drone Zone’. Even if you are a licensed drone pilot.
