Tethered Balloon Rides…
Floating high above the crowd….tethered rides will be available this year. A tethered ride is when the balloon lifts off the ground, hovers 20-30 feet above the ground for several minutes, but does not launch and fly away, what a great way to take in the views of Plano and Richardson.
