A discount ticket offer has been re-released for locals for this year’s Balloon Glow, night markets and concert on Saturday 28th April.
Event organisers understand there is some concern that ticket prices have increased for this year’s event which is set to be bigger and better than ever with a move across the road to the Showground to accommodate it.
“The price rise was in-line with similar events and was largely due to the in-depth event planning, risk management – including anti-terrorist plans – that are now legal requirements for events of this size,” Event Organisers outlined.
“Due to popular demand, a post balloon glow concert, Peter Byrne’s “Forever Diamond”, has also been included this year. This is an award-winning event which is now a flagship event for Destination NSW,” the Organiser outlined.
“As a community, we should all be very proud of the Balloon Challenge as it brings many visitors and gives us the opportunity to showcase our unique attractions.” “Not only is the event important for local businesses and jobs, injecting an estimated $2 million plus into our local economy, but our local people are integral to the success of the event.”
“The volunteers and everyone involved in the stalls, the entertainment, and the loyal locals who play host to friends, family and visitors during the challenge make it a success.” “To that end, we have re-released a discount ticket offer of $30 per adult for locals for the Balloon Glow, night markets and concert event.”
Kids under 18 are free, as are volunteers, people manning stalls, an adult escorting a performing child, and carers accompanying a disabled person. The local ticket discount will be redeemable by heading to the ‘Balloon Glow’ section of the website and using the ‘Get Tickets’ tab (www.canowindrachallenge.org.au/balloon-glow). You will need to enter the promo code LOCAL when prompted.
