KLAQ Balloonfest 2015 is right around the corner. See what the two featured balloons this year look like!

One of the best parts is all the amazing hot air balloons that fill up the Sun City skyline! In the past, you were able to see a monkey, zebra, spider-pig and more high in the sky above El Paso. This year, we're bringing out the awesome, geeky side of KLAQ by paying tribute to the amazingness of Star Wars. This year our featured balloons will be the Darth Vader balloon, which has come to Balloonfest in the past, but now he will be joined by the Jedi Master himself, Yoda.

Both the Balloons and dozens more will be launching from the Wet N Wild waterpark during Balloonfest weekend. Balloons take flight at 6 a.m. on May 23 – 25. As always, balloon launches are FREE to the public. Parking and more detailed location information to follow.

Tickets to the concert and waterpark portion of Balloonfest are on sale now. Find out more about Balloonfest here.
