South Texas Balloon Festival

1000 North Texas Avenue
Mercedes, TX 78570



Our mission is to provide our South Texas community a place where flying The South Texas Skies can come true, a place where families can create memorable and colorful experiences.  We want it to be magical for all.  We want our RGV community to continue to be considered a great place to live, work, and raise children, with another great event in its local entertainment lineup for those visitors who come every year to vacation, shop, or invest."


The commitment we feel to The South Texas Balloon Festival and to the social improvement of our community encourages our team to work hard and give our region a magical event that grows and develops into something special and beautiful that exalts the South Texas name across the state and brings pride to our region.
