|Temecula Balloon and Wine Festival|
Saturday and Sunday mornings are spectacular at the Festival when colorful hot air balloons dot the pastel dawn skies of Temecula. The mass balloon ascension takes place between 6 a.m. and 7 a.m. weather permitting. Guests are encouraged to arrive early as hot air balloons need the cool morning air to fly.
Concerts are held on two stages. Friday the Main Stage, sponsored by Pechanga Resort and Casino, features Jimmy Wayne, The Band Perry and Bomshel. The colorful balloon glow is conducted on the Wine Garden lawns and set to music. Saturday on the Main Stage Paul Rodgers headlines with alternative rock bands Gin Blossoms and Vertical Horizon as co-headliners. Saturday’s balloon glow opens and closes with Aunt Kizzy’z Boyz at the Wine Garden Stage. Sunday Spyro Gyra headlines on the Wine Garden stage while the WGAS freestyle motocross show is at the Main Stage. All concerts are included in the admission price.
