May 31st â€“ June 2nd
4 events rolled into one amazing festival
Silver Spurs Rodeo â€“ Rope in the excitement of real cowboys, bulls, broncos, and horses as they compete for top prizes. The rodeo is the largest sanctioned rodeo east of the Mississippi and has been a Kissimmee favorite since the 1940s.
Blue Skies Balloon Festival â€“ A glorious early morning hot air balloon launch will take your breath away as dozens of balloons of all shapes and sizes take flight. But thereâ€™s no need to watch from the ground when you can enjoy the sights from above by taking a hot air balloon ride.
Blue Skies Adventure Race â€“ While the balloons are floating above, thereâ€™s a challenge below with an adventure race. Test your endurance by competing in a
5 mile, rodeo themed adventure race.
Endless Summer Songwriters Festival â€“ You know that song. Youâ€™ve heard it before. But, you havenâ€™t heard it sung by the person who wrote it. Songwriters and their bands will perform top country songs on the open stage, under the blue skies at Osceola Heritage Park.
A glorious early morning hot air balloon launch will take your breath away at the Blue Skies Balloon Festival. Watch from the ground as more than 20 hot air balloons take off or enjoy the sites from above by taking a hot air balloon ride. During your ride, you will ascend anywhere from tree tops to several thousand feet. Once youâ€™re airborne your pilot will point out the spectacular sites of this area, from the theme parks and orange groves, to forests and swamps untouched forÂ thousands of years.
Either by ground or air, this is a photo opportunity that cannot be missed.
